Principles and Applications of RF/Microwave in Healthcare and Biosensing is written by leading authorities in the field, and gives basic theory, implementation details, advanced research, and applications of RF/microwave in healthcare and biosensing.
It provides a solid understanding of the fundamentals with coverage of the basics of microwave engineering and the interaction between electromagnetic waves and biomaterials. It then presents the state-of-the-art development in microwave biosensing, implantable devices (including applications of microwave technology for sensing biological tissues and cells), medical diagnosis (along with applications involving in-body and out-of-body sensors), and remote patient monitoring.
The book explains the fundamentals of RF and microwave engineering in healthcare and biosensing; how to combine biological and medical aspects of the field with underlying engineering concepts; how to implement microwave biosensing for material, molecular, and cellular characterization and cancer diagnosis; applications and functioning of wireless implantable biomedical devices and microwave non-contact biomedical radars and how to combine devices, systems, and applications for new practical applications.
This book reviews for the first time the fundamentals, latest developments, and future trends in this important emerging field, provides extensive coverage of biosensing applications, features input from leaders in the field, including members of the Technical Coordinating Committee of the IEEE Biological Effect and Medical Applications of RF/Microwave Society as well as provides a solid understanding of the fundamentals with coverage of the basics of microwave engineering and the interaction between electromagnetic waves and biomaterials.
