Simulation of Hyperthermic Treatment Using the Matrix of Stripline Applicators

B. Vrbová, L. Víšek

Abstract


This paper describes the design of a microwave stripline applicator for hyperthermic treatment, and the design of an anatomically based biological model, which is a necessary part of hyperthermia treatment planning for measuring the distribution of SAR. In this paper we compare the SAR distribution in a cylindrical homogeneous agar phantom (which has similar characteristics to biological tissue) and in an anatomically based biological model of the femur (which has been developed from a computer tomography scan) using a matrix of two applicators of the same type.
