Abstract:

Temperature distribution pattern on normal and cancer tissues caused by the Electromagnetic wave effect is presented in this paper. First, the pattern is modelled by using Bio Heat Transfer Equation and then the Galerkin Finite Element method is used to solve the equation via computer simulation. From the simulation results it can be shown that the temperature change on the cancer tissues is relatively constant and 0.4 degrees Celsius higher than the change on the normal tissues. From this phenomenon it can be understood that the damage of the cell of the cancer tissues is greater than the damage of the cell of the normal tissues. Therefore it is possible to use the Hyperthermia technique with electromagnetic wave for cancer therapy. The simulation results can be also used to decide the control strategy for giving the dose energy of electromagnetic wave which is flowed out to the cancer tissues.
