Superficial and Intraurethral Applicators for Microwave Hyperthermia
In this paper we present the results of the experimental examinations of our recent applicators i.e., an applicator based on a cylindrical waveguide for treatment of superficial cancers, and an intracavital one based on a monopole antenna.
