We have developed a millimeter-wave radiometer system for applications in the fields of medical imaging. In this paper, we introduced the brightness temperature measurement in the human body using Millimeter-wave Radiometer. Calibration of sensitivity of the radiometer system is essential to measure equivalent temperature (brightness temperature) of objects. We have developed, as a calibration source, a new type of black body for the millimeter wave region with temperature control capability. The system noise figure and temperature sensitivity of the system measured using the blackbody are 3.3 dB and 0.1 K, respectively. The brightness temperature of human body through clothes was measured to be around [C].
