A 3-D Frequency Domain Finite Differences (FDFD) code is developed for electromagnetic simulations of low frequency contactless electrical conductivity imaging. Simulations on discrimination of malign breast tumor are conducted. Required sensitivity of the differential coil system - for detecting a volume of 216mm(3) tumor which is located at I cm under the skin- are investigated for different frequencies
