An Ultra wide-Band (UWB) Vivaldi Antenna array is used for microwave imaging based brain cancer detection. A cancerous brain model which consists of a 5 mm tumour and four layers is simulated with CST Microwave Studio. The input pulse is radiated into brain model and the pulse response is recorded by the receiver antenna. The analytical signal function has been employed to eliminate the noise and the scanning method is applied for microwave imaging. The image processing result shows a good agreement with the actual tumour location in the brain model.
