Abstract

A mathematical model is suggested for the high-frequency heating of a live tissue containing a small malignant tumor. The tumor is preliminarily filled with a polymer to prevent heat extraction by flowing blood. The polymer must contain a dispersed ferromagnetic to ensure inductive heating. The unsteady-state temperature profiles obtained by numerically solving the biothermal equation are used to estimate the degree of thermal destruction of the tumor cells.
