Two numerical techniques are used to calculate the effect of large vessel counter-current flow on hyperthermic temperature distributions. One is based on the Navier-Stokes equation for steady-state flow, and the second employs a convective-type boundary condition at the interface of the vessel walls. Steady-state temperature fields were calculated for two(More)
Subsets of data from spatially sampled temperatures measured in each of nine experimental heatings of normal canine thighs were used to test the feasibility of using a state and parameter estimation (SPE) technique to predict the complete measured data set in each heating. Temperature measurements were made at between seventy-two and ninety-six stationary(More)
During hyperthermia therapy it is desirable to know the entire temperature field in the treatment region. However, accurately inferring this field from the limited number of temperature measurements available is very difficult, and thus state and parameter estimation methods have been used to attempt to solve this inherently ill-posed problem. To compensate(More)
