Abstract

In this paper classification algorithms will be used to investigate the presence of tumours in the breast, from signals collected with a radar microwave imaging prototype from the University of Bristol. A number of features will be extracted from the scattering of breast tumours and will then be used in classification algorithms such as Linear Discriminant Analysis or Quadratic Discriminant Analysis. The results from the classifier will allow creating an image of the considered synthetic breast phantom in which normal breast tissue is classified as a miss and tumour tissue is classified as a hit.
