Location: Room 204B

Time: 12:00-14:00

Abstract: Over the past three decades, collaboration between physicians and engineers has increased dramatically, to the benefit of our society. Biomedical engineering departments, the majority of which found in engineering schools and some within medical schools, offer seemingly unlimited opportunities and continue to attract a large number of students. To benefit from the merits of interdisciplinary cooperation and facilitate the transfer of technology to the market, existing large corporations, start-up medical companies, and research funding agencies now demand strong collaboration between engineers and physicians. With this in mind, IMS 2018 has made the subject of RF/microwaves in Medicine a major theme of the conference. The physicians on this panel will discuss the use of RF/microwaves in their respective fields. Topics ranging from microwave hyperthermia therapy for reoccurrences of breast cancer, advances in RF renal denervation, to back pain management using RF, will be highlighted!
