The Maxwell equations are solved together with the Pennes Bio-heat equation analytically. The procedure of solution is provoked by the solution to the Maxwell equation. The result revealed the effect of the model parameters such as: the thermal conductivity, blood perfusion coefficient, and the thickness of the tissues and the location of the effect of the electric field. Our result agrees with the results obtained by El-dabe et al (2003) the results are significant to medical experts and engineers.
