Abstract

In women with cancer, breast cancer is the most prevalent type of illness. Reduced mortality can be achieved with early detection. Microwave mammography, a non-invasive, safe replacement for mammography, is a promising development. The use of a miniature ultra-wideband dielectric resonator (UWB-DRA) antenna simulation in CST Microwave Studio allows for the detection of breast cancer. The operating frequency in empty space is approximately 3.548GHz. Breast model tumour cells can be detected by the newly developed UWB-DRA antenna-based MWI, opening the door to potential human life structures. 16 x 20mm made up the antenna. The ground plane and patch can be modified slightly to boost bandwidth. On efficiency and gain, it has a remarkable impact. As the time slot lengthens, the main lobe gain rises, the skin effect is offset, and the radiation properties are enhanced. The side lobe level falls as well.
