In this paper we present an accurate analytical solution of the scattering of a plane-wave by dielectric cylinders placed above a multilayered medium. An analytical approach is used to solve the scattered field by the cylinders in each medium through expansions into cylindrical waves, expressed through plane-wave spectra. The multilayer models a biological tissue consisting of skin, fat and muscle covered by a cotton textile. Several numerical examples are presented considering the electrical parameters of the biological and textile tissues at the millimeter frequency range (24 GHz). The results show that it is possible to obtain an intensification of the electric field in the underlying tissues in case of TM polarization of the incident wave, finding an interesting application for the charging of implantable or wearable devices.
