In this paper, a novel 3D UWB tomographic algorithm has been presented for brain hemorrhagic stroke detection. While 2D reconstructions are unable to distinguish between features at different heights, 3D reconstructions allow to obtain a complete representation of the brain and thus to differentiate them. A human brain model has been successfully reconstructed and the position of a blood vessel detected.
