This communication describes the ongoing efforts towards the assessment of microwave imaging as a tool for real-time monitoring of thermal ablation treatments. In particular, the ex-vivo experimental set-up adopted for the validation is described, and the results of a preliminary experiment are shown. Notably, by analyzing pre- and post-ablation treatment data it is possible to recognize the footprint of the interface between the ablated and not-ablated tissue, making it possible to estimate the boundary of the treated area.
