Microwave imaging is emerging as a promising substitution diagnostic tool, for breast cancer detection. It has ignited the interest in the interaction of the microwaves with biological tissues and their respective effects on the human body which requires the investigation of safety issues on human health under the exposure of antenna's microwave radiation. In this work a specifically designed directive and ultra-wideband antenna is developed for microwave holographic system. A detailed simulation analysis of Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) and temperature variation due to the radiation exposure of the designed antenna on self-designed anatomically real breast phantoms and Computer Simulation Technology (CST) voxel breast models are done in CST environment. Thereafter, the antenna and anatomical phantom are fabricated for the experimental verification of the simulation analysis of SAR. It is found that the SAR due to the radiation of the designed antenna lies in the permissible limit and the variation in temperature is only 0.096%. Hence, the antenna can be used in microwave holography for breast cancer detection.
