Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
structural prior information, also known as spatial priors (SP), about the object being imaged. This modification adds one extra term to the integrand of the standard MR, thus, being referred to as an augmented MR (AMR). The main advantage of the proposed approach is that it requires a minimal change to the existing microwave imaging algorithms that are already equipped with the MR. Using two experimental data sets, it is shown that the proposed AMR (i) can handle partial SP, and (ii) can, to some extent, enhance the quantitative accuracy achievable from
