TEMPERATURE-CONTROLLED HEATING OF TUMORS BY MICROWAVES.

Journal Article

After a discussion of tissue electrical properties and vascularity, the microwave source and applicator requirements are presented to optimize the differential heating of cancerous tissue embedded in normal tissue. A method for automatically and accurately controlling the amount of heat delivered to a given region by the microwave source-applicator system is also described.
