Sensor applications in medical diagnosis are growing at an astonishing rate. Twenty five years ago, these applications were limited to laboratory measurement of blood gases and electrolytes. Today biosensors are used in a variety of ways to monitor glucose in diabetes, detect and diagnose cancer and infectious diseases; new applications appear almost daily. Linking sensors to mobile phone technology has made wearable sensors a reality, allowing individuals to monitor not only chronic diseases, but also their lifestyle as a key input to preventative medicine.
Sensors in Medicine 2014 will highlight the most innovative application of sensors in medicine, and promote the adoption of these new technologies by bridging academic, clinical and commercial worlds.
The IEEE-NEMS 2014 will be held in Waikiki Beach, Hawaii, USA, from 13–16 April 2014. We invite contributions describing the latest scientific and technological research results in subjects including, but are not limited to:
