Development of appropriate heat transfer models to investigate the thermal behavior of living tissues has become increasingly important in simulations of cancer hyperthermia. In this paper, a review is initially presented of the more important general models developed for heat transfer description of perfused tissues. Comparisons are then made between Pennes' simplified Weinbaum and Jiji "WJ" and the more recent porous media "PM" bioheat models. For this purpose, a mathematical model is… CONTINUE READING
