A novel multimodal imaging approach for breast cancer detection is studied in terms of its detection and classification capabilities in a simple homogeneous breast model. The study comprises three stages: i) realistic breast and tumour numerical models are adapted so that they can be simultaneously used in both Positron Emission Mammography (PEM) and Ultra WideBand (UWB) radar; ii) the accuracy of each technique in identifying the correct location of breast cancer within the breast is compared; and iii) UWB will be used to classify tumours at the location found in stage ii).
