The main purpose of this study is to investigate the coupled effects of the pulsatile blood flow in thermally significant blood vessels and the thermal relaxation time in living tissues on temperature distributions during thermal treatments. Considering the fact that propagation speed of heat transfer in solid tissues is actually finite according to experiments, the traditional Pennes bioheat transfer equation (PBTE) was modified to a wave bioheat transfer equation (WBTE) that contains both… CONTINUE READING
