SAR deposition by curved CFMA-434 applicators for superficial hyperthermia: Measurements and simulations.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Contact flexible microstrip applicators (CFMA) are applied for superficial hyperthermia. In the clinic these flexible applicators are mostly applied bent along the body curvature. This paper investigates the specific absorption rate (SAR) patterns of CFMA applicators, when bent around an elliptical tissue-equivalent phantom. METHODS The 2H… (More)
