Abstract:In this work, key technologies for an integrated electromagnetic hyperthermia treatment planning and monitoring system are presented. Numerical methods for the prediction of electromagnetic and thermal fields inside of human tissue are presented and validated. Various schemes for optimizing the effectiveness of hyperthermia treatments that exploit these numerical models are then presented. Lastly, the use of noninvasive temperature measurements, such as those provided by magnetic resonance thermometry (MRT), to provide input to an on-line control system to regulate the temperature field during a hyperthermia treatment is discussed. The performance of one such scheme is simulated using the developed numerical models of the hyperthermia process.
