Phantom Repository

The UWCEM Numerical Breast Phantom Repository contains a number of anatomically-realistic MRI-derived numerical breast phantoms for breast cancer detection and treatment applications. The breast tissues in these phantoms have the realistic ultrawideband dielectric properties reported in Lazebnik, et al, Phys. Med. Biol., 2007

Read the instruction manual first.

Also find here the 3D-printable phantom as described by Burfeindt et al in MRI-Derived 3-D Printed Breast Phantom for Microwave Breast Imaging Validation.
