Abstract. Experimental study results of the method of near-field microwave diagnostics of subsurface dielectric inhomogeneities with millimeter-centimeter sizes are obtained with the set of resonant microwave probes (using edge capacity of cylinder capacitor) with different depth of sounding. These results are presented for test experiments with the spirit-teflon medium and in the application to the medical-biological diagnostics of skin. In analysis, the solution of integral equation that related probe capacity variations (determined from resonance parameters measured above an inhomogeneous medium) with the spatial distribution of inhomogeneities of complex permittivity. This method has been tested and calibrated in controlled condition by measurements of two-layered medium (spirit-teflon). It appeared possible to to determine experimentally and study the kernel the integral equation of the corresponding inverse problem, as well as to study efficiency of its solution. Then, the developed algorithm has been applied in sounding of the subsurface profile of complex permittivity of the sound human skin as well as of profile variations of dielectric parameters of skin burning wounds of rats. Results demonstrate real possibilities of various possible applications of this method in the medical-biological diagnostics of the inner skin structure as well as of its deceases, including those related to burning wounds. This methods gives the possibility to determine the depth and volume of these wounds that is very important to the proper choose of the treatment strategy.
