Abstract

A dual-track sector-vortex array applicator is proposed for treating nonsuperficial tumors. This array configuration allows considerable flexibility in synthesis of an acoustic field whose power deposition pattern is useful for heating both the central and the marginal region of a tumor. The acoustic field formation and the thermal response of tumors to the field are numerically simulated.
