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. About Help Blog Jobs Welcome to our new website.

It is important to note that modulated or pulsed RFR seems to be more effective in producing an effect. It can also elicit a different effect, especially on brain function, when compared with CW RFR of the same characteristics.

The above devices, especially handheld cellular phones, are of concern by the public. It is agreed that such devices should be subject to routine RF environmental evaluation prior to use. While uncertainty continues, it is fair to exercise some prudence in the use of cellular phones.
Any technique or procedure that modifies the design, construction, or operation of the radiating system in order to prevent undesired radiation could be considered to be a radiation source control. The unsolved issues continue to raise public concern that there could be some degree of risk from EM exposure.
These concerns influence risk management and public acceptance of scientific health risk assessments. Reasonable risk management should be build on evidence stemming from both risk assessments and insights from social studies that investigate this concern through well organized research. What is needed is greater public involvement in the risk-management decision making process, including both individuals and stakeholder groups.
Participation in the development of an appropriate risk management strategy can go a long way towards the achievement of consensus solutions that enjoy the support of interested and affected parties, even if all participants do not fully understand all of the scientific complexities involved in the evaluation of risk. With technologically based risks, such as those that may be associated with EM fields, industry has a particular responsibility to take a leadership role in open participatory discussions on risk management strategies.
As risk management options are debated, consideration will need to be given to level of risk that might be associated with exposure to EM fields and the attendant scientific uncertainty about EM risks. Independent and unbiased research to further our understanding of the potential EM health risks. Transparency and full divulgence of data on EM emissions from various sources. Public access to the most up-to-date research on biological and health effects associated with EM fields.
Scientific risk assessment that goes beyond technical issues and identifies a need for psychometric approach including cognitive, emotional, and social demographic determinants of risk. Thorough risk assessment and research projects with a potential to discover even the smallest of health risk with aims and results to be well communicated to all stakeholders. Public participation in risk management actions taken in response to concerns about the potential health risks of EM fields.
Assessment impact of precautionary measures on public concern and the adoption of voluntary or mandatory policies. Adequate communication with individuals and groups on the various levels of scientific uncertainty. Summary As the development in science and technology advances and as we are enjoying a better quality of life, it is required from scientists to ensure that safety is not compromised.
Scientist must be very careful in reporting their findings. Mistakes must be minimized and stopped at the first level of scientific research. In closing, I would like to summarize this part of this presentation and make a good reason to start the next part with this conclusion made by Professor C-K Chou: Hyperthermia The temperature of a part of the body or of the whole body can be raised to a higher than normal level oC , which may allow other types of cancer treatments radiation therapy or chemotherapy to work better.
This type of hyperthermia has applications in oncology for cancer treatment.
Bioeffects and Therapeutic Applications of Electromagnetic Energy
Thermal Ablation Very high temperature above 45oC can be used to destroy cells within a localized section of a tumor. This is commonly used in oncology for cancer treatment, in urology for benign prostatic hyperplasia BPH treatment and in cardiology for heart stimulations, and other areas.
It has been an effective modality of cancer treatments, showing significant improvements in clinical responses for many patients. Can be used alone, or In combination with other treatment methods, such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and gene-therapy. The clinical exploitation of hyperthermia was and still hampered by various challenges including High degree of interdependency between physiology and biology Technical and clinical limitations Standardization.
The methods of ablation most commonly used in current practice are divided into two main categories: Chemical ablation ethanol and acetic acid that induce coagulation necrosis and cause tumor ablation , and Thermal ablation RF, Microwave, Laser. Thermal ablation can be an alternative to risky surgery, and sometimes it can change a patient from having an inoperable tumor to being a candidate for surgery.
Realistic modeling of the cooling effect of large and medium blood vessels. Determining the parameters frequency factor and energy of the thermal damage function for different types of tissues hepatic, breast, cardiac, etc. To ask other readers questions about Bioeffects and Therapeutic Applications of Electromagnetic Energy, Second Edition , please sign up.
