# Electromagnetism for Health Technology

## Overall Course Objectives

It is the objective of the course to provide the theoretical foundation in electromagnetism for health tech applications within optics, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), bioelectric measurements, and instrumentation. Applications are introduced through exercises focusing on, e.g., optical imaging and spectroscopy, bioelectric measurements, and the operational principles of magnetic resonance imaging.

Learning Objectives

• apply vector analysis (divergence, gradient, curl, the Gauss and Stokes theorems) in electromagnetic problems.
• calculate electrostatic forces, fields, and potentials associated with simple or symmetrical charge distributions.
• calculate magnetic forces, fields, and vector potentials associated with simple or symmetrical current distributions.
• calculate electromagnetic fields in matter with polarization and magnetization.
• determine the electric and magnetic field energy and the associated work and energy flux density.
• calculate induced magnetic and electric fields using the law of induction and displacement currents.
• solve Maxwell’s equations with boundary conditions in problems with more than one material.
• explain the electromagnetic principles of solenoids, transformers, and DC motors.
• interpret Maxwell’s equations as a basis for explaining and determining electromagnetic waves in vacuum and in matter.
• explain the electromagnetic principles in optics.
• apply electrostatics to calculate extracellular potentials from bioelectric current sources.
• explain how coils are used to create magnetic fields, such as those used in an MRI scanner.
