Abstract
Detect breast cancer in early stages, ensure a comfortable and cheap diagnostics in order to reduce women mortality, are the challenges of this paper. A compact ultra wideband (UWB) Planar antenna for Microwave thermography system is designed and simulated using two commercial software, CST Microwave Studio and HFSS simulators.
