Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy, EIS, is widely used in the study of electrical properties and structure of biological tissues, namely in quality control of fruits and the characterization of specific botanical tissues. The present work aims to extend the EIS concept to identify structure damaging pathologies for in vivo vegetal tissue. This allows for(More)
Local pulse-wave velocity (PWV) is an accurate indicator of the degree of arteriosclerosis (stiffness) in an artery, providing a direct characterization of the properties of its wall. Devices currently available for local PWV measurement are mainly based on ultrasound systems and have not yet been generalized to clinical practice since they require high(More)
