Microwaves have been proven to be a potential and promising alternative to standard X-rays in the framework of medical screening and detection by offering several advantages in terms of patient comfort and protection, as well as in terms of reduced costs and repeatable acquisitions. Major countries have defined future healthcare as one of the main challenges in the framework of research initiatives; thus the investigation of safety issues relative to the adoption of electromagnetic waves in medical sensing, monitoring, and diagnostics could be of strong interest.
We invite authors to submit original research as well as review articles reporting recent advances in the application of electromagnetic waves technologies in bioengineering.
We are particularly interested in new design methodologies and simulation techniques to face the challenges imposed by the biological environment for wave propagation due to the physiological variations in the human body.
The scope of this special issue will be the collection of new and/or review results exploring the use of electromagnetic waves formedical treatment and diagnosis, thus including diagnostic tool for cancer detection and antenna systems for accurate radar imaging of the human body.
