True thermal conductivity of 13 Walker 256 mammary carcinomas in noninbred Sprague-Dawley rats averaged 3.2+/-0.9 mW/cm/degrees C under physiologic conditions. A comparison of the effective thermal conductivity in 4 tumors with and without blood flow revealed large differences ranging from 14 to 132%. When the blood supply to the tumor was doubled or reduced to one-half, the effective thermal conductivity varied proportionally to the square root of the perfusion rate. The values of thermal… CONTINUE READING
