A light weight, conformal, flexible, and clinically relevant hyperthermia applicator for the treatment of cancerous tumors has been developed. The applicator uses microwave hyperthermia for applying homogeneous thermal distribution with improved thermal dosimetry. The design utilizes a half wavelength meander-line to feed a microstrip slot antenna. It is capable of deeper penetration, has a high SAR and adequately matched input-impedance for various tissue loading. With a compact size of 11.0… CONTINUE READING
