About the Authors
  • In this comprehensive work, experts in the field detail recent advances in medical and biological microwave sensors and systems, with chapters on topics such as implantable sensors, wearable microwave tags, and UWB technology. Each chapter explores the theory behind the technology, as well as its design and implementation. This is supported by practical examples and details of experimental results, along with discussion of system design, design trade-offs, and possible constraints and manufacturing issues. Applications described include intracranial pressure monitoring, vital signs monitoring, and non-invasive molecular and cellular investigations. Presenting new research and advances in the field, and focusing on the state of the art in medical and biological microwave sensors, this work is an invaluable resource for enthusiastic researchers and practicing engineers in the fields of electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, and medical physics.

    • Expert authors describe recent advances in state-of-the-art medical and biological microwave sensors and systems
    • Includes practical examples and applications in biology and medicine
    • Covers system design and design trade-offs

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This book is one of the most comprehensive texts available to date in the area covering multiple biological and medical applications of microwave sensors. … In my opinion, this is a must-read for the traditional microwave research community with limited medical research background to explore possible biomedical applications of their research. Also, it is a great resource for medical professionals of non-engineering background to explore the new technology which microwave engineers can offer in [the] near-future. This book may also be used as a textbook or graduate level courses in biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, and medical physics.' Muhammad Zubair, Contemporary Physics
