Traditional medical imaging systems are not able to identify tumor in human fast and reliable way. Imaging systems as computed tomography scan, magnetic resonance imaging, etc., bring human health-related issues because of the ionization effect. In this study, the design and performance analysis of a 3D antenna has been done for microwave imaging application to diagnose cancer. A folded radiating structure, directive 3-D antenna has been used for the application of microwave imaging for clinical diagnosis. By optimizing the complete dimension, projected antenna is achieved with a reduced size of 20 × 20 mm2. In addition, the antenna was modeled with four layers of woman breast phantom tissues. This shows that the projected antenna is an appropriate equipment which can be used to construct a microwave diagnostic procedure meter for early women breast cancer detection.
