The paper presents the microwave signal processing method using MATLAB based on the result of microwave imaging system simulation developed using Computer Simulation Technology (CST). The simulation system contains a transmitting/receiving antenna, human brain and a tumor inside the brain model. The source signal, microwave signal operates from 1 to 10 GHz. The generated scattering parameters (S-parameters) are in frequency domain form. This paper describes in detail regarding the signal

Peaks detection process was performed in order to identify the time delay of the reflection points at different Y-axis positions.
