Valery Bankov, Professor of the Department of Normal Physiology, Doctor of Medicine presented his monograph «Non-contact impedance measurement. Diagnostics, treatment, practice». The scientist`s work is the result of years of research and experimentation. «All these studies are based on classical impedance measurement, which is used in electrophysiology, functional diagnostics, when registering an electrocardiogram, encephalogram, and so on» said Valery Bankov. The monograph also includes the technical idea of using standard impedance measurements for the development of methods for the treatment and prevention of viral infections.
