Abstract:

A theoretical method based on the numerical solution of a tensor integral equation was developed to quantify the internal EM fields induced in finite heterogeneous biological bodies by nonuniform impressed EM fields. An experimental study was also conducted to develop and study implantable EM field probes which can be used to measure the internal EM fields induced in simulated biological bodies. Major topics of this program include 1 implantable electric field probes, 2 the interaction of near zone field of an antenna with human body, 3 theoretical and experimental studies on the induced EM fields inside human bodies, and 4 EM local heating for hyperthermia cancer therapy.
