This volume on ultrashort waves in their medical-biologic applications is the latest contribution to that field by German physical therapy. This work is the first volume of a symposium called "The Observations of Biophysical Research" being assembled by Professor Rajewsky.
In no sense a handbook for everyday use by the physician, it is essentially a rigorously theoretical textbook for advanced study. The subject matter is in large measure intelligible only to a properly qualified physicist. This becomes evident from a cursory examination of chapter headings:
Introduction: Actual problems of biophysical research in the field of short and ultrashort waves.
Chapter 1: The physical and technical fundamentals of ultrashort wave therapy.
Chapter 2: Biophysical foundation of ultrashort wave action in living tissue.
Chapter 3: Theory of the reactions of biologic bodies in the high frequency fields.
Chapter 4: The problem of treating biologic bodies in an ultrashort wave radiation field.
