Abstract: - This paper is based on different types of antenna used for breast cancer detection .It is based on the principle of synthetically focused Ultra wide band radar imaging technique. These antennas are operated in UWB range of frequency from 3 to 10.6 GHZ. Different antennas for the survey are horn antenna, bow tie antenna ,half oval patch and stacked patch antenna. A comparative study of these antennas are done are from this wide slot antenna has excellent performance than other antenna.
