Effects of microwave heating on the thermal states of biological tissues
AbstractA mathematical analysis of microwave heating equations in one-dimensional multi-layer model has been discussed. Maxwell's equations and transient bioheat transfer equation were numerically calculated by using finite difference method to predict the effects of thermal physical properties on the transient temperature of biological tissues. This prediction of the temperature evolution in biological bodies can be used as an effective tool for thermal diagnostics in medical practices.
Key words: Microwave heating, Maxwell's equations, bioheat, multi layer.
