Computational Bioelectromagnetics in Medicine

Call for Papers

There is an increased research interest on the possible use of nonionizing electromagnetic fields (EMFs) in medicine. Numerical modelling of the interaction between electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and the dielectrically inhomogeneous human body provides a unique way of assessing the resulting spatial distributions of internal electric fields, currents, and rate of energy deposition. Knowledge of these parameters is of crucial importance in understanding such interactions and is a prerequisite when assessing, designing, or optimizing therapeutic or diagnostic medical applications that employ EMFs.

The purpose of this special issue is to publish high-quality research articles as well as reviews that seek to address recent developments on how the use of electromagnetic computational techniques can support the development and optimization of innovative and emerging EMF-based medical devices and applications, which will be safer, more efficient, and less invasive. The special issue will cover from the fundamentals issues (e.g., basic theories), to numerical techniques, and up to EMF clinical applications.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Invasive and noninvasive neural stimulation (i.e., transcranial magnetic stimulation, transcranial direct current stimulation, vagal nerve stimulation, and cortical electrical stimulation)
  • Microwave ablation therapy
  • Microwave imaging
  • EMF induced hyperthermia
  • Magnetic drug targeting and delivery
  • Wearable, implantable, and ingestible antennas
  • Electroporation
  • Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) systems in healthcare
  • Multiphysics and multiscale computational models
  • Neural tissue models
  • Functionalized anatomical models
