microwave, diagnostics, therapeutic, special applications, sets, evaluation


Diagnostic, therapeutic and some special applications of microwaves are discussed. A brief description of methods and devices and their approximate evaluation are given. It is shown that the most interesting prospect is a combined diagnostic and therapeutic method, which permits execution of a procedure on a patient simultaneously with monitoring to avoid the unwanted influence of microwaves.
