The estimation of the skin reflection is a crucial step towards successful breast tumour detection. This paper investigates the two-dimensional improved version of an existing general purpose technique for estimating target objects of arbitrary shape. The ability of the proposed method in estimating the breast skin location is tested over a wide range of realistic FDTD-based scenarios with results demonstrating accurate estimation of the breast skin location.
