Abstract

Suppressing skin reflection is vital for successful tumor detection in radar breast imaging systems. In this communication, a novel skin reflection removal (SRR) algorithm is presented based on a previously-proposed breast surface reconstruction algorithm. This skin reflection removal algorithm is validated using numerical MRI-derived breast models. This communication also investigates how the same skin location information can be used to enhance the delay-and-sum algorithm.
