Abstract

Microwave thermal ablations therapies are based on the absorption of an electromagnetic field at microwave frequencies to induce a very high and localized temperature increase to remove unhealthy tissue. The development of clinical protocols for treatment planning is strictly linked to the availability of numerical models able to correctly predict the procedure outcomes. In this paper, some numerical models proposed in the literature were considered and their results were compared. © 2014 European Microwave Association.
