The dielectric permittivity and electrical conductivity of fluid-saturated rat femoral bone were determined as a function of the conductivity of the immersion fluid over a frequency range of 10-100 Hz to 8 MHz. The specimens were equilibrated in various solutions of Hank's balanced salt solution modified to contain various sodium chloride concentrations, with conductivities ranging from 0.13 to 3.55 s/m. The results of these measurements show that the dc conductivity of the tissue is about 1… CONTINUE READING
