Bioelectromagnetics in Healthcare
Advanced sensing and communication applications
Bioelectromagnetics in Healthcare: Advanced sensing and communication applications is a collection of twelve invited chapters from international experts from the UK, Japan, Switzerland, and the United States of America. The book forms a cohesive architecture that covers the state-of-the-art in terms of sensing and communications with relevance to bioelectromagnetics in healthcare. The book provides a valuable insight into the current and future possibilities where electromagnetics engineers will need to keep improving radiofrequency device performance in terms of better efficiency, greater sensitivity, reduced unintended power absorption by the body, smaller size, and lower power consumption.
Topics covered include dielectric measurements, dosimetry for bioelectromagnetics, phantom recipes for implanted and wearable antenna applications, antennas for implants, electromagnetic coupling in biological media, electromagnetic resonators and metamaterials-based structures for chemical and biological sensing in body-centric wireless applications, bone fracture monitoring using implanted antennas, wearable antennas for sensing, epidermal and conformal electronics, radar for healthcare technology, therapeutic applications of electromagnetic waves, and optoelectronic sensing of physiological monitoring.
The book is aimed at electromagnetics engineers and advanced students in electromagnetics working on healthcare and medical applications.
