This paper presented the clinical results of breast cancer detection using a radar-based UWB microwave system developed at the University of Bristol. Additionally, the system overview and some experimental laboratory results are presented as well. For the clinical result shown in this contribution, we compare images obtained using the standard X-ray mammography and the radar-based microwave system. The developed microwave system has apparently successfully detected the tumor in correct position, as confirmed on the X-ray image, although the compression suffered by the breast during X-ray makes a precise positional determination impossible.
