This letter presents a full-wave, whole-system modeling of microwave imaging tomography (MWT) systems to be used as the forward model in reconstruction (inverse) algorithms. The full geometry including antennas and their ports is simulated via a finite element method (FEM) approach. A new technique is used to compute the antenna operation in the system, which provides a general method to enforce the excitation as a specific modal distribution and to extract the voltage and current from the employed antenna. We report results for a complete microwave imaging (MWI) system with comparison between measured and simulated data.
