Evaluation of temperature sensitive amorphous metal flakes for self-regulated hyperthermia

IEEE Transactions on Magnetics, 1991

A fundamental study on the soft heating method for local hyperthermia is discussed. A heater made of temperature-sensitive amorphous metal flakes of various lengths was tested. The flakes were implanted in a phantom, and heating characteristics and temperature distribution established in the phantom were measured. The phantom test reveals that the flakes are able to heat a surround area of ...

  • Magnetoresistive power sensor for measurement "in situ" of RF power absorbed by tissue

    A new magnetoresistive sensor for its use in medicine apparatus of RF heating and hyperthermia is present. This sensor has DC output signal which is proportional to RF power absorbed in tissue. The operating principle of the sensor consists of multiplication of the instantaneous value of the RF current and voltage in a microstrip transmission line by using the special constructed magnetoresistive element. At an operating frequency 915 MHz in a 20% bandwidth it has a sensitivity of 22 /spl mu/V/W, insertion losses less than 0.1 dB and no linearity less than 3% up to 300 Watts. The uncertainties caused by the reflected waves with arbitrary phase are less than 3.5% up to VSWR=3.

  • Evaluation of temperature sensitive amorphous metal flakes for self-regulated hyperthermia

    A fundamental study on the soft heating method for local hyperthermia is discussed. A heater made of temperature-sensitive amorphous metal flakes of various lengths was tested. The flakes were implanted in a phantom, and heating characteristics and temperature distribution established in the phantom were measured. The phantom test reveals that the flakes are able to heat a surround area of 5 mm. This 5 mm is considered as the therapeutical region. It is concluded that the soft heating device utilizing the flakes has a potential to be applied in clinical hyperthermia.<<ETX>>

  • Time reversal invariance of nonlinear acoustic wave propagation in weakly viscous media

    Time Reversal Mirrors (TRM) are usually used in a low power regime. However, their potential applications in such various fields as hyperthermia or lithotripsy implies to investigate their behavior in a higher power regime. In such high power configurations, nonlinearities have to be taken into account. If one considers the acoustic wave equation in a non viscous medium [for example, Westerfeld's equation], the time reversal invariance holds. In a non linear regime, the shape of a sinusoid emitted by an acoustic source changes continuously during propagation as energy is transferred to harmonics. If this distorted signal is time reversed after some propagation distance and remitted in the opposite direction, it will suffer an inverse shape distortion during the propagation and finally recover a perfect sinusoidal shape. This property holds as long as the shock distance is not reached, otherwise the shock discontinuity implies an irreversible change of the entropy and the time reversal invariance is broken. The experimental evidence of such phenomenon is here presented. The experimental results are compared with 1D numerical simulations of Burgers equation.

  • Modified gysel power divider for hyperthermia using microstrip to slotline transitions

    An in-phase power divider with high power handling capability is presented. The proposed design is a modified structure of the traditional Gysel design. The modification includes using microstrip to slotline transitions to connect the input port to the two output ports with the aim to match the ports across wide band. As with the conventional design, the device uses an external isolation resistor, and thus it is suitable for high power microwave based applications. The proposed structure provides 53% fractional bandwidth (1.5-2.6 GHz) based on 15 dB of isolation as the reference. The simulated results show equal power division with 1 dB additional insertion loss, more than 15 dB of return loss at the input, 10 dB at the output ports, and 15 dB isolation while maintaining less than 10° phase imbalance between the output ports.

  • A compact microwave patch applicator for hyperthermia treatment of cancer

    Design and development of a compact microstrip C-type patch applicator for hyperthermia treatment of cancer is presented. The patch antenna is optimized for resonance at 434 MHz, return loss (S11) better than -15dB and co-polarized electric field in tissue. Effect of water bolus thickness on power delivery is studied for improved power coupling. Numerical simulations for antenna design optimization carried out using EM simulation software, Ansys HFSS®, USA were experimentally verified. The effective field coverage for the optimized patch antenna and experimental results indicate that the compact antenna resonates at ISM frequency 434 MHz with better than -15 dB power coupling.

The proposed converter is designed and implemented, showing its feasibility for the proposed application and enabling advanced treatments and an increased equipment portability.
