ABSTRACT Large-scale dielectric spectroscopy of healthy and diseased breast tissue in the 0.1 to 20 GHz frequency range is currently underway. Open-ended coaxial probes are used as sensors to record the reflection coefficient of the tissue samples. The measured reflection coefficient is converted to the dielectric properties data through a suitable inverse technique. The collected data will aid in further advances of the microwave technology for early breast cancer detection. Thus, it is crucial to ensure the highest possible accuracy and reliability of the tissue measurements.
