AWPL 2013 - IEEE AWPL Special Cluster on Microwave Medical Imaging



VenueOnline, Online Online



Topics/Call fo Papers

IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters (AWPL) recently
introduced clusters, which are groups of letters on a selected
topic. This call for papers is for a 2012 special cluster on the
topic of microwave imaging in medicine. The accepted papers in this
cluster will be published together along with an editorial,
providing a focused collection of some of the latest microwave
medical imaging research of interest to the IEEE Antennas and
Propagation Society. To be considered for this cluster, please
submit your article to AWPL by October 15, 2012
(, and clearly indicate in your
cover letter to the Editor-in-Chief that your manuscript is being
submitted in response to the Call for Papers for the Microwave
Medical Imaging Cluster.
The concept of using of non-ionizing microwave-frequency
electromagnetic waves to image the human body has intrigued
engineers and clinicians alike for several decades. Low-power
microwaves can be used to sense the dielectric properties of human
tissue in a low-cost manner that poses no health risk to the
patient. Yet numerous challenges need to be overcome in order to
achieve the promise of microwave imaging in a clinical setting.
We welcome the submission of manuscripts discussing novel advances
that show promise for moving microwave imaging technology towards
clinical realization. Letters may examine theoretical and/or
experimental issues, including topics ranging from image
reconstruction algorithms to antenna elements and complete systems.
Application to a specific medical imaging challenge must be briefly
