Biomedical Applications of Electromagnetic Fields

Abstract

This chapter pertains to some examples of biomedical applications of electromagnetic fields. Some illustrative numerical results are given for the following. The transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), a noninvasive and painless technique, which has become a very important tool in diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, is modeled using a rigorous integral equation-based approach. Furthermore, a completely new concept in nerve fiber modeling based on the thin wire antenna approach is given. The model, based on the corresponding Pocklington integro-differential equation, can be particularly useful for physicians when using the electrotherapy techniques, particularly electro-acupuncture ...
