Magnetic fluid hyperthermia (MFH) therapy uses the magnetic component of electromagnetic fields in the radiofrequency spectrum to couple energy to magnetic nanoparticles inside tumors. In MFH therapy, magnetic fluid is injected into tumors and an alternating current (AC) magnetic flux is applied to heat the magnetic fluid- filled tumor. If the temperature(More)
We previously reported that μ-oxo N,N'-bis(salicylidene)ethylenediamine iron [Fe(Salen)], a magnetic organic compound, has direct anti-tumor activity, and generates heat in an alternating magnetic field (AMF). We showed that Fe(Salen) nanoparticles are useful for combined hyperthermia-chemotherapy of tongue cancer. Here, we have examined the effect of(More)
We present an eddy-current test (ECT) method for detecting conductive microbeads on a nonconductive substrate. A Helmholtz coil is used to generate an exciting magnetic field. The magnetic fields, generated by eddy-currents in a Pb-Sn microbead, are detected by a spin-valve giant magnetoresistive (SV-GMR) sensor. The experimental results are compared to an(More)
This paper describes the recognition of micro non-magnetic (conductive) and ferromagnetic material with spinvalve magneto-resistance (SV-GMR) sensor. High frequency and static magnetic fields were applied to material for the recognition of the micro conductive and ferromagnetic material respectively. The SV-GMR sensor is used to detect the magnetic field(More)
Giant magnetoresistance (GMR) sensor has been developed and widely applied to use as magnetic read head in data storage industry. This paper describes new applications of magnetic-field measurement with high spatial-resolution and high sensitivity to nondestructive evaluation and biomedical engineering. For nondestructive evaluation, the GMR sensor, used as(More)
