Dielectric Properties of Healthy Human Skin and Challenges towards Dermal Anomaly Detection using Electromagnetic Techniques

June 16, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The subject talk aims to present the complex nature of the human body’s largest organ (skin) in terms of its dielectric properties. Skin is the primary barrier to the external environment and protects vital organs from harmful organisms. Any malignancy damaging this first line of defence would require an urgent clinical response. Therefore, as a pre-requisite towards building an electromagnetic skin cancer detection system, it is necessary to understand the dielectric nature of healthy skin and its variation across multiple body regions. The talk will discuss the statistical relationship between the dielectric properties of measured dermal regions and various bio-features, such as skin pigmentation, body weight and gender, observed across 50 healthy volunteers. The observations are aimed at assisting the development of an electromagnetic skin cancer detection system by identifying the causes of dielectric variations across different dermal measurement conditions. The interactive session will also address the measurement challenges and proper characterization procedures of this heterogeneous biological tissue in the clinical environment.
