The interaction between the human body and electromagnetic (EM) fields is used by medical devices for both diagnosis and therapeutic purposes. This webinar shows how human body models have evolved to a point where both the EM radiation effects and macroscopic effects, such as heating and specific absorption rate (SAR) distribution, can be predicted with CST simulation software tools.
Over the last decade, there have been two growing trends within the Bio-EM field. Firstly to use EM-based devices in favor of X-ray-based devices and secondly, furthering analysis on wireless communication and its effect on implant devices. For developing such medical devices, the main challenge is to determine the EM field distribution within the body. EM simulation is beneficial because it offers the possibility to personalize medical treatment plans and greatly improve diagnostic tools without the need for excessive invasive testing.
