Three temperature measurement methods used during microwave thermotherapy of prostatic enlargement are analysed and evaluated using a phantom model. A commercial transurethral microwave thermotherapy (TUMT) system that uses a radiometric thermometer for temperature control was used to heat the phantom. The transient temperature distribution was obtained by using both fibreoptic (which is considered as gold standard) and thermocouple measurements. Both methods are subject to potential… CONTINUE READING
