Abstract

The dipole design, which is generally used for microwave interstitial hyperthermia applicators, produces negligible heating hear the tip which requires that the applicator penetrate beyond the tumor into normal tissue. The authors adapted the meander design, which has previously been applied to antennas for communications, to make hyperthermia applicators. SAR measurements, made using an electric field probe, show that the new applicators permit controlling the heating pattern as exemplified by greater heating near the tip.
