A new antenna system for microwave non-invasive hyperthermia lipolysis.


PMID 23367220

Abstract

In this paper, we present an antenna system for microwave non-invasive hyperthermia lipolysis. The antenna system consists of a circular waveguide antenna radiating electromagnetic waves, AlN (Aluminum Nitride) radome and heat sink. The AlN radome with heat sink helps to extract heat from the skin to keep skin temperature not to rise during heating the lipolysis. The antenna was designed to be operated with TE(21) mode to maintain uniform temperature over wider area. The usability of the proposed system was verified by performing numerical simulation and hyperthermia lipolysis experiments on rats.
