In this paper, the no-sampling linear sampling method is applied to microwave imaging of cancerous tissues in realistic models of female breast obtained from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The adopted formulation is based on a modified version of the far-field equation, sensitive to anomalies with respect to the healthy breast. The healthy configuration is taken into account through the related Green's function, which is numerically computed. The adopted imaging technique is assessed against the inspection of tumors of several positions and sizes in noisy environments. Moreover, a numerical analysis of the robustness of the method is performed when the model parameters used for evaluating the Green's function are not exactly known.
