The microwave imaging systems have the potential to present a cost effective and less hazardous alternative to conventional medical imaging techniques. In this paper, a Contrast Source Inversion method based microwave imaging scheme is proposed and tested for the detection of pulmonary edema and hemorrhage. To this end, a realistic human torso phantom is used, and the electromagnetic parameters of the human tissues is determined via Cole-Cole model. The scattered field is simulated via Method of Moments at the operating frequency of 350 MHz, and a 50 dB white Gaussian noise is added to model a realistic measurement setup. The numerical tests performed with the proposed technique suggest that the method can be used to locate the pulmonary edema and hemorrhage, and it is capable of distinguishing these two medical conditions successfully. © 2022 IEEE.
