This paper presents a 2-D breast phantom which was realized with oil-in-gelatin materials for the evaluation of three different tumor detection methods operated in the microwave spectrum 1 – 3 GHz. A planar monopole antenna was used to scan the phantom in a multi-monostatic configuration across 36 angular locations. Results show a better performance of an Interferometric-MUSIC approach when compared to Non-coherent Migration and Wide Band MUSIC.
