Medical applications of RF/microwaves are highlighted in this paper. The emphasis is placed on newer emerging diagnostic and therapeutic applications, such as microwave breast cancer detection, and treatment with localized high power used in ablation of the heart, and liver, benign prostate hypertrophy, angioplasty, and others.
