Title Resonant inductive applicator for neck hyperthermia
Date 1989
Description We have designed and phantom tested an inductive applicator especially suited for producing hyperthermia in cancerous regions in the neck. The applicator is tuned to resonate near 27 MHz; its inductive nature has the advantage of efficient coupling to the irregular neck anatomy. An inhomogeneous neck phantom consisting of an outer fat layer and bone and air columns was constructed. The heating pattern in the phantom was relatively uniform within the cross-sectional area, indicating promise for clinical applications.
