Abstract

A fundamental study on SOFT HEATING method for local hyperthermia is discussed. A heater made of temperature sensitive amorphous metal flakes with various length was tested. The flakes were implanted in a phantom and heating characteristics and temperature distribution established in phantom were measured. The phantom test reveals that the flakes are able to heat the surrounding area of 5 mm.
