Electrical Properties of Biological Materials: A Bibliographic Survey

Published

Author(s)

Ken L. Stricklett, J. Baker

Abstract

A bibliographic survey of the electrical properties of biological tissues and of phantoms is provided. A phantom is, for these purposes, any material, structure, or system that is intended to emulate the electrical properties of biological tissues, biological systems, or of a whole organism. Phantoms are considered for 1) the evaluation of interference in medical electronic devices due to exposure to the electro-magnetic fields generated by hand-held and walk-through metal detectors, and 2) the development of standard tests to evaluate the accuracy, reliability, and sensitivity of hand-held and walk-through metal detectors. The following subjects are included in this bibliography: measurements of the electrical properties of biological tissues, phantom materials, and materials that may hold potential use as a phantom material; the description and evaluation of phantoms; and techniques for measurement of electrical properties.
