A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW OF IN VITRO AND IN VIVO RADIO FREQUENCY EXPOSURE METHODS.

Abstract

The interests in the effects of radio frequency (RF) on biological systems has increased. This interest has increased partially due to the advancements and increase implementations of RF into technology. As research in the area has progressed, the reliability and reproducibility of those experiments has not crossed multidisciplinary boundaries. Therefore, as researchers, it is imperative to understand the various exposure systems available as well as the aspects, both electromagnetic and biological, needed to produce a sound exposure experiment. This systematic review examines common radio frequency exposure methods for both in vitro and in vivo studies. For in vitro studies, discussion of possible biological limitations to consider were also emphasized. The validity of the examined methods, for both in vitro and in vivo, were analyzed by discussing the advantages and disadvantages of each. This review offers guidance for researchers to assist in the development of an RF exposure experiment that crosses current multidisciplinary boundaries.
