Abstract

A 13-cm square direct-contact microwave applicator which operates at 915 MHz is evaluated in tissue models and human volunteers to determine its therapeutic effectiveness. It is found that the applicator with radome- and forced-air cooling selectively elevates temperatures in muscles (1-2 cm) to 43-45 degrees C. At this higher range of temperature, certain physiologic responses such as an increase in blood flow are produced. The applicator may also be used to heat malignant tumours of muscle.
