A variable frequency magnetic induction heating system has been developed for localized hyperthermic treatment of deep-seated tumors via power deposition into arrays of 1-2 mm diameter ferromagnetic cylindrical implants. The frequency dependence of implant heating compared to that induced directly into tissues indicates use of frequencies below 4 MHz. Above 10 MHz, tissues are heated directly from the induced eddy currents. Thermographic analyses of temperature distributions induced in tissues… CONTINUE READING
