  2. Quantifying the benefits of electromagnetic scanning
  3. Near-field to far field relationships/correlations and the value of combining electromagnetic scanning, cable measurements and chamber results
  4. Applications
    1. immunity/susceptibility testing
    2. evaluation of filters and shields
    3. locating the sources of common mode radiation
  5. H field versus E field probes
