BACKGROUND An axisymmetric finite element method (FEM) model was employed to demonstrate important techniques used in the design of antennas for hepatic microwave ablation (MWA). To effectively treat deep-seated hepatic tumors, these antennas should produce a highly localized specific absorption rate (SAR) pattern and be efficient radiators at approved generator frequencies. METHODS AND RESULTS As an example, a double slot choked antenna for hepatic MWA was designed and implemented using… CONTINUE READING
