A method was proposed for introducing hyperthermia to destroy or halt the growth of tumors by means of electro-magnetic induction, generating an eddy current which raises the temperature locally. Using a two-dimensional model, it was found that appropriate application of a uniform ac magnetic field, together with two local magnetic fields, enabled the… CONTINUE READING
