Abstract

In this paper, we present the results of a whole-system modeling of a microwave measurement prototype for brain imaging, consisting of 160 ceramic-loaded antennas working around 1 GHz. The modelization has been performed using open source FreeFem++ solver. Quantitative comparisons were performed using commercial software Ansys-HFSS and measurements. Coupling effects between antennas are studied with the empty system (without phantom) and simulations have been carried out with a fine numerical brain phantom model issued from scanner and MRI data for determining the sensitivity of the system in realistic configurations.
