IEEE 杰出讲座通知

演讲人:Koichi ITO(伊藤公一)教授(IEEE Fellow,   IEEE AP-S 杰出演讲人;

日本千叶大学 医学工程交叉学科研究中心主任)

  点:东南大学 (四牌楼校区)李文政楼 六楼 612会议室


讲座一:Microwave Antennas for Medical Applications   [上午10:00-11:30]

Abstract:       In recent years, various types of medical applications of antennas have widely been investigated and reported.  Typical recent applications are:

(1) Information transmission:

   - RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) / Wearable or Implantable monitor

   - Wireless telemedicine / Mobile health system

(2) Diagnosis:

   - MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) / fMRI

   - Microwave CT (Computed Tomography) / Radiometry

(3) Treatment:

   - Thermal therapy (Hyperthermia, ablation, etc)

   - Microwave knife

In this presentation, three different types of antennas which have been studied in our laboratory are introduced.  Firstly, a pretty small antenna for an implantable monitoring system is presented.  A cavity slot antenna is a good candidate for such a system.  Some numerical and experimental characteristics of the antenna are demonstrated.  Secondly, some different antennas or “RF coils” for MRI systems are introduced.  In addition, SAR (specific absorption rate) distributions in the abdomen of a pregnant woman generated in a bird cage coil are illustrated.  Finally, after a brief overview of thermal therapy and microwave heating, coaxial-slot antennas and array applicators composed of several coaxial-slot antennas for minimally invasive microwave thermal therapies are introduced.  Then a few results of actual clinical trials by use of coaxial-slot antennas are demonstrated from a technical point of view.  Other therapeutic applications of the coaxial-slot antennas such as hyperthermic treatment for brain tumor and intracavitary hyperthermia for bile duct carcinoma are introduced.


讲座二:Phantoms for Evaluation of Interactions between Antennas and

the Human Body          [下午14:30-16:00]

Abstract:       Recently, many researches have been done on the interactions between the human body and electromagnetic (EM) waves radiated from antennas for mobile terminals or other equipments.  The "interactions" mean two ways: an influence of the human body on the performance of the antenna and an influence of EM waves on the human body.  Such interactions are estimated by numerical simulation and/or experimental evaluation. 

In this presentation, firstly, various types of numerical phantoms or human models which are used for theoretical analysis and computational simulation are introduced.  Canonical phantoms such as sphere or cube have been mainly used for EM dosimetry inside the human head.  In order to estimate the performance of the antenna close to the human body in the actual situation or SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) distribution inside the human body, it is sometimes necessary to use realistic numerical phantoms which are composed of many small voxels.  On the contrary, tissue-equivalent liquid, gel, semi-hard or solid phantoms are usually used for experimental evaluation.  Then some different experimental phantoms are introduced and compared.  There are two typical ways to evaluate SAR distributions by using experimental phantoms: the “electric-field method” with a liquid phantom and the “thermographic method” with a semi-hard or solid phantom.  Finally, this presentation introduces some examples of "new" solid phantoms including a UWB phantom and a torso phantom which are used for the study on body-centric wireless communications.
