Abstract : Recent research has shown that treatment of tumors with localized heat (42 - 45 degrees Celsius) can cause partial or even complete tumor regression. Heating with microwave energy may prove to be a viable clinical procedure. A promising approach to microwave hyperthermia applicator design is to use phased array antennas to rapidly scan an arbitrary tumor volume with a minimal diameter beam or heating spot.
