Chapter 4 Understanding Electric Fields for Clinical Use Faisal Mahmood Abstract For physicians or researchers from the biological sciences, it is usually not necessary to deal with the in-depth scientific theory of the electric field in order to handle procedures involving electrotransfer. On the other hand, it is very often of utmost importance to know the basic concept, from a pragmatic point of view, to understand simple electric field distributions. In this chapter, we initially address the basic physics and definitions of electrostatics in order to prepare the reader for the practical topics that follow.

As in tissues, cells in clusters also have complex geometrical shapes, are densely packed, and are often connected with intercellular pathways. Thus, the only significant deviation is their twodimensional arrangement, as opposed to typically three-dimensional cellular structures of tissues. Intracellular pathways, also termed gap junctions, are small protein channels that allow for the exchange of ions between neighboring cells. The opened or closed state of the gap junctions renders the cells electrically connected or electrically insulated, respectively, and in this manner it can affect DYm and electroporation considerably.
