Title: Numerical Investigation of Temperature Distribution inside a Cancerous Solid Tumors during Advanced Thermal Treatment using Magnetic Nanoparticles and External Magnet
Recent advancement in magnetic nanoparticle make them an interesting choice for hyperthermia treatment. The purpose of current study is to numerically investigate temperature distribution within the cancerous solid tumor tissue during hyperthermia treatment. The treatment is by using nano magnetic particle that are injected into the blood stream and is influence by an external magnet. In order to solve the coupled governing mass, momentum, concentration and energy equations an in house finite volume based code is developed and utilized. Results show that for higher than 0.0015 particle concentration the temperature of the tumor reaches higher than 41 oC which is ideal for treating the cancerous tissue.
