Prediction of tumor heatability in microwave hyperthermia applicators
Paper i proceeding, 2018

In this paper, the heating efficiency of two hyperthermia applicators has been evaluated for the treatment of tumors in the brain. The effect of a high number of antennas and lower frequencies were investigated by employing one applicator with many antennas and one applicator with antennas operational in a lower frequency range. An investigation method was first used to find out the most difficult and easy places for heating inside the head. Given the applicator, patient model, and tumor position, the method is assessing whether or not the applicators are able to heat the tumor efficiently.
