dc.description.abstractCancer is the leading cause of deaths worldwide. Early detection of malignant tumors reduces mortality rates because cancer can be cured if treated early. Even the widely accepted standards for tumor detection, such as breast mammography, limitations exist, however, such as having high false positive and negative rates, ionizing radiation and painful breast compression. Microwave cancer detection methods that identify the presence of a tumor by detecting the dielectric difference of normal tissues and malignant tumors is thus explored as a new modality.en_US
