about this item

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.
