Abstract

A noninvasive monopole phased array antenna for microwave hyperthermia is investigated. The principal application for this array, with 915 MHz microwave radiation, is the treatment of shallow tumors. Preliminary tests in a liquid phantom indicate desirable focused electric-field characteristics.
