      This paper compares an in-house dielectric properties measurement system based on the "Stuchly and Stuchly" method with the broadly commercialised Keysight setup and existing literature for the characterization of ablated ...
    • Dielectric characterization of diseased human trabecular bones at microwave frequency 

      Amin, Bilal; Shahzad, Atif; Farina, Laura; Parle, Eoin; McNamara, Laoise; O'Halloran, Martin; Elahi, Muhammad Adnan (Elsevier, 2020-02-07)
      The objective of this study is to determine whether in vitro dielectric properties of human trabecular bones, can distinguish between osteoporotic and osteoarthritis patients' bone samples. Specifically this study enlightens ...
    • Dielectric characterization of ex vivo ovine and human adrenal glands for microwave thermal ablation applications 

      Bottiglieri, Anna; Shahzad, Atif; Donlon, Padraig; Dennedy, Micheal Conall; Lowery, Aoife; O'Halloran, Martin; Farina, Laura (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2021-01-15)
      Historically, adrenal glands diseases causing hypertension, such as Primary Aldosteronism (PA), have been treated through pharmacotherapy or surgical resection. Given the shortcomings of the available treatment options, ...
    • Exploiting tissue dielectric properties to shape microwave thermal ablation zones 

      Bottiglieri, Anna; Ruvio, Giuseppe; O’Halloran, Martin; Farina, Laura (MDPI, 2020-07-16)
      The dielectric characterization of tissue targets of microwave thermal ablation (MTA) have improved the efficacy and pre-procedural planning of treatment. In some clinical scenarios the tissue target lies at the interface ...
    • Investigating human bone microarchitecture and dielectric properties in microwave frequency range
