J. Schmid, and O. Dössel. An electromagnetic simulation environment, to construct microwave imaging algorithms. In Biomedizinische Technik. Biomedical Engineering, vol. 58(s1) , 2013
This paper is about the construction of an ultra- wideband microwave (UWB) simulation environment and about the construction of a model of the human head in- cluding regions of stroke. It calculates the propagation of microwaves within a wide frequency range through biolog- ical tissues. The simulations will be used to guide the de- velopment of a new system for early detection of stroke with UWB. The simulation has to be as close as possible to the real physiological properties of human tissues including the dispersive effects.
