The biomedical applications of ultrawideband (UWB) radar promise a very important means to remotely monitor physiological signatures such as myocardial deformation and respiration. Accurate numerical and analytical techniques to predict the propagation of UWB signals in biological tissue are of great interests to researchers as an aid in developing signal processing algorithms. We propose applying an analytic transmit/receive signal path model considering the antennas, the human body, and the signal processing part of the UWB unit. Furthermore, the frequency dependency of the different biological tissues’ dielectric properties and the individual continuous motion of intrathoracic tissue layers are incorporated.
