4th International Conference on Wireless Mobile Communication and Healthcare - "Transforming healthcare through innovations in mobile and wireless technologies"

November 3–5, 2014 | Athens, Greece

Advances in Medical Diagnosis and Therapy Applications of Electromagnetic Fields

This session will focus on recent developments in the use of radio waves for medical imaging and therapy applications, which has attracted great interest from numerous research groups in recent years. For example, RF and microwave technology is currently being studied for: the early detection and classification of breast cancer; contactless vital sign monitoring (heart and respiration), non-invasive intracranial imaging and stroke detection; focused microwave hyperthermia for various types of cancer, etc. These applications involve research in various topics which include, but are not limited to:

  • Biomedical instrumentation including antenna design

  • Signal processing techniques and imaging algorithms

  • Performance assessment of existing and novel experimental prototypes for therapeutic and diagnostic applications

  • Medical device communication through electromagnetics

The session invites contributions in all the above as well as related fields. Contributors are encouraged to contact the session's organizers for additional information.
