Abstract : The Microwave Theory and Techniques Society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) sponsored a workshop on Microwave Dosimetric Imagery as part of the 1980 International Microwave Symposium in Washington, D.C. The purpose of this workshop was to bring together papers on a variety of techniques for microwave imagery with the goal of enhancing their application to medicine in the context of microwave dosimetry. These original papers have been supplemented by reports of related work (Guo et al., Slaney et al.) that has taken place between the time of the symposium and the publication of this volume. These methods of microwave imagery are pertinent to dosimetry because as a class they represent the best hope for noninvasive dosimetry analysis of biosystems exposed to microwave radiation.
