Selective hyperthermia can be a feasible treatment modality for deep tissue abnormalities. It is accomplished by using a laser or ultrasound noninvasively to transfer energy to a desired target causing tissue damage. This process has two potential benefits to medical professionals: simplicity of procedure and safety to patient. However, optimizing these selective interactions is difficult due to the number of variables. We propose an optimization coefficient relating the dynamic and geometric… CONTINUE READING
