Abstract:
Single element loop, dipole and conventional square patch antennas have been used as hyperthermia applicators in the treatment of cancerous human cells at superficial depths inside the body. A smaller novel patch antenna in very close proximity to a phantom tissue model produces an enhanced specific absorption rate pattern without significant frequency detuning or impedance mismatch. The new patch increases its coupling aperture by supporting a combination of resonances that are also typical for loop, dipole and square patch antennas. For computation efficiency and clarity in the synthesized hyperthermia treatment conditions, simplified planar tri-layered tissue models interfaced with a waterbolus are used to study the permittivity loading on the antennas and the resultant specific absorption rates
