About this book

Using a multidisciplinary approach that combines physics, biology, medicine, risk assessment, and engineering, Bioeffects and Therapeutic Applications of Electromagnetic Energy presents detailed descriptions of fundamental physical concepts and principles in electromagnetic fields and radiation. The book provides a review of cutting-edge research in EM health effects and EM therapy along with emerging areas of bioengineering and biomedical engineering. Several chapters address standards and regulatory issues related to EM human exposure. This comprehensive text also offers coverage of bioeffects as well as risk assessment of low frequency fields and radio frequency radiation.
