Abstract: Micro strip antennas are finding a growing medical application in imaging, diagnosis, and treatment. In this paper an optimized E-shaped patch antenna is presented. This paper presents a flexible micro strip antenna that can be placed in contact with the human skin. Microwave breast imaging (MBI) uses low power and longer wavelength signals to obtain information about breast tissues, and promises a safer and more accurate modality for regular breast scanning. In this paper, a method is shown to reduce the effect of signal reflection from the breast skin by placing the antenna in-contact with the breast skin. The skin can be considered a layer of the antenna substrate. This reduces the signal scattering from the skin and more transmitted signal is irradiated on the tumor, thus, increasing the tumour detection sensitivity. Design and simulation in Ansoft High Frequency Simulation Software (HFSS) is presented.
