Abstract


OBJECTIVE
To study some thermal problems in invasive microwave coagulation (IMC) therapy.
METHODS
Temperature fields predicts, limitation and remedy methods of the Pennes bioheat transfer equation during the temperature distribution analyses and how to kill a large anomalistic tumor for only once were discussed.
RESULTS
The coagulation area between the simulations and actual measured results showed good correspondence. Blood flow influenced the rise in temperature significantly.
CONCLUSIONS
Thermal distribution with computer simulation in invasive microwave coagulation therapy is an accurate and reliable method.
