Anotation:

The major aim of these lectures is to give to students a basic overview of biophysical aspects of EM fields in different biological systems, including an overview of microwave applications in medicine. Safety limits, clinical usage of EM field effects on biological systems, microwave hyperthermia, measurement of dielectric parameters of biological tissues, EM exposure of mobile phone users, magnetic resonance imaging, interaction of optical radiation with biological tissue.
