In this paper, an approach based on a multi-scaling strategy for the reconstruction of the non-measurable components of equivalent current distributions is tested against experimental data. An extensive set of simulations is carried out considering single and multiple scatterers with homogeneous as well as inhomogeneous properties. Selected results are reported and discussed to show potentialities and limitations of the method.
