Antennas can be implanted into human bodies or can just be mounted over the torso (skin-fat-muscle) to form a bio-communication system between medical devices and exterior instruments for short range biotelemetry applications. In addition to the clear benefits to the healthcare system provided by body implanted devices, economical aspects are also relevant Remote monitoring systems facilitate the diagnosis of diseases and favor the hospital at home by reducing the hospitalization period.


This Special Issue presents the most up-to-date works related to the use of antennas in Biomedical and healthcare, both as diagnostic tools and as therapeutic interventions. Implantable medical devices have become more and more interesting for healthcare services. Nowadays, the devices designed to monitor physiological data from inside the human body have great promises to provide major contributions to disease prevention, diagnosis and therapy. Furthermore, minimally invasive devices allow reducing hospitalization terms, thus improving the patients’quality of life.


This Special Issue will discuss all aspects of the design and modeling of electromagnetic imaging techniques, electromagnetic devices, wireless implants, and in vitro and in vivo testing. Design issues for wearable antennas, wearable sensors, magnetic coils, and coil array issues will be explored and biomedical applications such as cancer detection, stroke event detection, GI diagnostics, and cardiovascular risk prediction and other biomedical and healthcare applications will be discussed.

    Abstract Sugar is important in daily food intake since it is used as food preservative and sweetener. Therefore, is important to analyze the influence of sugar on the spectroscopic properties of the sample. Terahertz spectroscopy is proven to be useful and an efficient method for sugar detection as well as for future food quality industry. However, the lack of detection sensitivity in Terahertz Spectroscopy has prevented it from being used in a widespread spectroscopic analysis technology. In this paper, Frequency Selective Surface (FSS) using the Terahertz Spectroscopy Time Domain Spectrum (THz-TDS) which operates at terahertz frequency range has been demonstrated for… More >
