We have developed a new muscle-equivalent phantom which is composed of water, polyethylene powder, NaCl, agar and so on. This phantom can maintain its shape by itself and it is easy to make and handle. The complex permittivity of the phantom is very similar to that of the actual muscle tissue at UHF. The specific heat and thermal conductivity are suitable for the thermographic method.
