Project description

We propose the investigation of non-invasive MRI techniques to create a more reliable database of human dielectric properties. We will apply the accurate values to show improved performance of realistic statistical 3D EM simulations. The societal benefit consists of the improved accuracy of medical diagnosis and better field assessment in humans for improved compliance assessment.
