Antenna and Sensor Technologies in Modern Medical Applications
Rahmat-Samii, Yahya, Topsakal, Erdem
A guide to the theory and recent development in the medical use of antenna technology
Antenna and Sensor Technologies in Modern Medical Applications offers a comprehensive review of the theoretical background, design, and the latest developments in the application of antenna technology. Written by two experts in the field, the book presents the most recent research in the burgeoning field of wireless medical telemetry and sensing that covers both wearable and implantable antenna and sensor technologies.
The authors review the integrated devices that include various types of sensors wired within a wearable garment that can be paired with external devices. The text covers important developments in sensor-integrated clothing that are synonymous with athletic apparel with built-in electronics. Information on implantable devices is also covered. The book explores technologies that utilize both inductive coupling and far field propagation. These include minimally invasive microwave ablation antennas, wireless targeted drug delivery, and much more. This important book:
- Covers recent developments in wireless medical telemetry
- Reviews the theory and design of in vitro/in vivo testing
- Explores emerging technologies in 2D and 3D printing of antenna/sensor fabrication
- Includes a chapter with an annotated list of the most comprehensive and important references in the field
Written for students of engineering and antenna and sensor engineers, Antenna and Sensor Technologies in Modern Medical Applications is an essential guide to understanding human body interaction with antennas and sensors.
