XFdtd EM Simulation Software features an enhanced biological thermal sensor, which allows metals and other non-biological objects to be included in the temperature rise computation.  This application example illustrates an antenna design for hepatic microwave ablation simulated in liver tissue.  Antenna performance, SAR distribution, and thermal response are determined to evaluate the effectiveness of the device for treating deep-seated tumors.
