A microwave mammography setup for clinical testing was developed and used to successfully carry out an initial clinical test. The equipment is based on multistatic ultra wideband (UWB) radar, which features a multistatic microwave imaging via space time (MS-MIST) algorithm for high resolution and a conformal array with an aspirator for fixing the breast in place. In this paper, an outline of the equipment, a numerical simulation, and clinical test results are presented.
