A calculation method is introduced and subsequent numerical results are shown for the effect of skin in radiometric detection of breast cancer using a horn antenna in direct contact with the skin. The electromagnetic problem in layered medium is solved applying the exact image theory, which enables the field calculation also in the near-field range. A proposal to optimize the aperture function for better resolution is given.
