    • Effects of standard coagulant agents on the dielectric properties of fresh human blood 

      Salahuddin, Saqib; O'Halloran, Martin; Porter, Emily; Farrugia, Lourdes; Bonello, Julian; Sammut, Charles V.; Wismayer, P. Schembri (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2017-11-27)
      In this paper, the effects of coagulation and temperature on the dielectric properties of human blood are investigated over the frequency range of 400 MHz - 20 GHz using freshly extracted blood samples. The dielectric ...
    • Heparin as an anticoagulant for the dielectric measurement of blood 

      Dunne, Eoghan; O'Halloran, Martin; Porter, Emily; Bonello, Julian; Farrugia, Lourdes; Sammut, Charles V.; Schembri-Wismayer, Pierre (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2019-01-23)
      Testing blood ex-vivo allows physicians to gain an understanding of what is happening within the human body. Once blood is extracted from the body, it begins to clot. This process can affect the outcome of blood tests, ...
    • An investigation of the variation of dielectric properties of ovine lung tissue with temperature 

      Bonello, Julian; Elahi, Muhammad Adnan; Porter, Emily; O'Halloran, Martin; Farrugia, Lourdes; Sammut, Charles V. (IOP Publishing, 2019-06-24)
      Presently, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths. Microwave thermal ablation is commonly used for the treatment of lung cancer. During microwave ablation treatment, changing temperatures (up to 100 °C) cause ...
