UWB microwave imaging has potential for early-stage screening diagnostics of breast cancer. We present an experimental measurement setup for breast phantom trials based on M-sequence radar technology and active small dipole antennas as pre-stage for real in vivo measurements in a prone examination position. We describe current development steps as well as first experiences concerning the imaging of heterogeneous breast phantoms.
