Non-invasive microwave hyperthermia treatment of breast cancer is investigated using three-dimensional (3D) numerical breast phantoms with anatomical and dielectric-properties realism. 3D electromagnetic and thermal finite-difference time-domain simulations are used to evaluate the focusing and selective heating efficacy in four numerical breast phantoms with different breast tissue densities. Beamforming is used to design and focus the signals transmitted by an antenna array into the breast… CONTINUE READING
