In the framework of the European School of Antennas, the course “Diagnostic and Therapeutic Applications of Electromagnetics” will be held in Roma, at the Faculty of Engineering, Sapienza University of Roma, Italy, on June 13 – June 17, 2022.
The course is organized by Sapienza University, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche and Politecnico di Torino.
Short description of course:
Electromagnetic (EM) fields are increasingly used in the clinical practice both in diagnostics and therapeutic applications. Examples include Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for the diagnosis, and electromagnetic hyperthermia and thermal ablation for therapies. Additionally, new applications are under developments, as e.g., radar-based monitoring of respiratory and cardiac activities. All these applications need a complete knowledge of the dielectric properties of human tissues, both healthy and diseased ones, and of the behaviour of the electromagnetic field in the human body.
This course aims at introducing this interdisciplinary area to the interested audience in the electromagnetic community, providing the ability to understand the issues of medical applications of EM fields. It is primarily conceived for Doctoral students and early-career researchers with an engineering or physics background. In this cross-disciplinary course, instructors from EM engineering, physics, biology and clinical communities will be involved.
The course fee is 440 EUR for non-profit institutions and 880 EUR for companies.
Grants for selected students are available for applicants registering before May 14, 2022.
