Abstract
Microwave coagulation therapy is a clinical technique for treating hepatocellular carcinoma (small size liver tumor). Through extensive numerical simulations, we reveal the mathematical relationships between some critical parameters in the therapy, including input power, frequency, temperature, and regions of impact. It is shown that these relationships can be approximated using simple polynomial functions. Compared to solutions of partial differential equations, these functions are significantly easier to compute and simpler to analyze for engineering design and clinical applications.
