This work details how an indirect microwave holographic technique originally developed for antenna measurements can be extended to imaging applications. It outlines how complex field patterns can be reconstructed from holographic intensity patterns. It also outlines how images of both metallic and non-metallic objects can be obtained from these patterns. Results are presented to demonstrate how this technique ca b be applied in the areas of concealed weapons detection and medical imaging.
