This paper presents the feasibility of using holographic microwave imaging (HMI) method for diagnosing lung tumour. A numerical imaging system is developed to evaluate the working principle, which includes a realistic CT-based thorax model. Results show that various small lung tumours with arbitrary shapes, sizes and locations can be identified in the reconstructed images. The HMI approach has a potential for lung cancer detection.
