|Abstract:||The aim of this paper was to investigate the correlation between the dielectric properties of biological tissues and their different states of hydration. Measurements were conducted on rat muscle and fat tissues both in vivo and ex vivo, in different states of dehydration through a loss on drying technique. Dielectric parameters were observed as a function of frequency from 500 MHz to 50 GHz by utilizing an openended coaxial probe at constant room temperature of 25° C. By observing which dehydration fractions fall within in vivo values, it was deduced that ex vivo samples are reliable in representing the dielectric parameters of in vivo samples, under certain controlled hydration conditions whereas, further analysis should be conducted for tissue characterized by low water content.|
