Abstract

The authors define and present a method of optimizing the intensity gain of multiple-focus phased-array hyperthermia field patterns. Optimization of the intensity gain is shown to increase the power deposition in the target volume. More significantly, it is shown to reduce the interference patterns outside the target volume, thus improving the localization of heating to the tumor volume. Simulation results are given to illustrate the effect of intensity gain maximization on interference patterns.
