Any book under this title which creates both anticipation and anxiety must be the work of a lot of people, present any new findings with objectivity and cover the subject as exhaustively as possible. As such, it must cover the possible reproducible mechanisms of action/reaction EMF-Biological Organism, the appropriate models that allow quantitative measurements, the basic biological reproducible effects and possible therapeutic effects along with their prevalent metrics and international exposure criteria. This is exactly the main objective of this book. It is also believed that it provides some new results and conclusions which complement, clarify and verify the existing results in the literature included in the references [1] and [2]. Electromagnetic Radiation is a form of energy, which is transmitted in the form of waves which correspond to spatial and time variations of the electric and magnetic field. Electromagnetic fields appear in a vast set of frequencies (spectra) that are divided in frequency zones, according to the manner they are produced or used. Areas greater than 300 gigacycles (GHz), which include the solar spectrum, as well as x and gamma rays, have been studied sufficiently under a different angle in relation to possible biological effects. People are well aware of the harmful effects of sun radiation when they are exposed to the sunlight for extended periods of time and of the catastrophic effects of nuclear bombs and nuclear reactor leaks.

Comprehensive Coverage of Therapeutic Modalities Used in a Clinical Setting A Doody's Core Title for 2011! Therapeutic Modalities in Rehabilitation is a theoretically based but practically oriented guide to the use of therapeutic modalities for practicing clinicians and their students. It clearly presents the basis for use of each different type of modality and allows clinicians to make their own decision as to which will be the most effective in a given situation. Presented in full color, the text describes various concepts, principles, and theories that are supported by scientific research, factual evidence, and experience of the authors in dealing with various conditions. The chapters in this text are divided into six parts: Part I––Foundations of Therapeutic Modalities begins with a chapter that discusses the scientific basis for using therapeutic modalities and classifies the modalities according to the type of energy each uses.. Guidelines for selecting the most appropriate modalities for use in different phases of the healing process are presented. Part II––Electrical Energy Modalities includes detailed discussions of the principles of electricity, and electrical stimulating currents, iontophoresis, and biofeedback. Part III––Thermal Energy Modalities discusses those modalities which produce a change in tissue temperatures through conduction including thermotherapy and cryotherapy. Part IV-Sound Energy Modalities discusses those modalities that utilize acoustic energy to produce a therapeutic effect. These include therapeutic ultrasound and a lesser known modality-extracorporal shockwave therapy. Part V––Electromagnetic Energy Modalities includes chapters on both the diathermies and low-level laser therapy. Part VI––Mechanical Energy Modalities includes chapters on traction, intermittent compression and therapeutic massage. Each chapter ins Parts II-IV discuss: the physiologic basis for use, clinical applications, specific techniques of application through the use of related laboratory activities, and relevant individual case studies for each therapeutic modality.

As wireless technology becomes more sophisticated and accessible to more users, the interactions of electromagnetic fields with biological systems have captured the interest not only of the scientific community but also the general public. Unintended or deleterious biological effects of electromagnetic fields and radiation may indicate grounds for health and safety precautions in their use. Spanning static fields to terahertz waves, Electromagnetic Fields in Biological Systems explores the range of consequences these fields have on the human body. With contributions by an array of experts, topics discussed include: Essential interactions and field coupling phenomena, highlighting their importance in research on biological effects and in scientific, industrial, and medical applications Electric field interactions in cells, focusing on ultrashort, pulsed high-intensity fields The effect of exposure to naturally occurring and human-made static, low-frequency, and pulsed magnetic fields in biological systems Dosimetry or coupling of extremely low frequency (ELF) fields into biological systems and the historical developments and recent trends in numerical dosimetry Mobile communication devices and the dosimetry or coupling of radiofrequency (RF) radiation into the human body Exposure and dosimetry associated with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy Available data on the interaction of terahertz radiation with biological tissues, cells, organelles, and molecules There is great potential for communication, industrial, scientific, and medical use of electromagnetic fields and radiation. To help advance knowledge of the biological effects of such fields and to exploit their potential medical applications, this book highlights critical issues relating to their effects on living systems.

Bioelectromagnetic and Subtle Energy Medicine focuses on a wide variety of evidence-based bioelectromagnetic and subtle energy therapies for disorders ranging from cancer, cardiomyopathy, and Parkinson's disease to depression, anxiety, and pain. Since publication of the first edition more than a decade ago, there have been so many advances in these and other diseases, that a thorough revision is required for this resource to remain the gold standard in a burgeoning field. This second edition updates previous topics and features many new chapters describing novel approaches that promise to replace drugs or surgery because they are more effective and much safer, such as rTMS for depression, MRI-Guided Focused Ultrasound for bone and uterine tumors, and TheraBionic LEET for liver cancer. Others discuss biological water (H3O2) that acts like a battery, health benefits of Earthing, malignant and other brain tumors from cell and cordless phones, visualizing and measuring energy fields in humans and nature, making sense of homeopathy and "memory of water," basic science support for acupuncture, electrosensitivity, ion cyclotron resonance, the role of the pineal gland, the health effects of solar storms and terrestrial influences, and why Bioelectric Resonance Therapy bridges Chinese and Western medicine. This is only a sampling of the 50 chapters contributed by authorities from the United States, Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, China, Japan, and Iran.

To successfully detect and diagnose disease, it is vital for medical diagnosticians to properly apply the latest medical imaging technologies. It is a worrisome reality that due to either the nature or volume of some of the images provided, early or obscured signs of disease can go undetected or be misdiagnosed. To combat these inaccuracies, diagnosticians have come to rely on applications that focus on medical image analysis. While there is a vast amount of information available on these procedures, a single-source guide that can comprehensively yet succinctly explain them would be an invaluable resource to have. Medical Image Analysis Methods is that resource. It is an essential reference that details the primary methods, techniques, and approaches used to improve the quality of visually perceived images, as well as, quantitative detection and diagnostic decision aids. The book methodically presents this information by tapping into the expertise of a number of well-known contributing authors and researchers that are at the forefront of medical image analysis. This comprehensive volume illustrates analytical techniques such as, computer-aided diagnosis (CAD), adaptive wavelet image enhancement, and data-driven optimized image segmentation and registration. Paradigms of the analysis methods used in bioinformatics and neurosciences are also provided in respective chapters. In addition, this reference reviews techniques that are used to evaluate these major medical-image processing and analysis methods.
