Abstract

A versatile hyperthermia control system, based on a microcomputer, provides automated temperature regluation (1 channel) and monitoring (3 channels) and control of microwave output (both on/ off and power level), and displays temperature (°C) and microwave output (watts) graphically in real time; all data are stored on floppy diskette.
