Title: PHASED ARRAY APPLICATOR SYSTEMS FOR DEEP TISSUE HYPERTHERMIA
Agency: HHS
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $250,000.00
 

Abstract:

THE EFFICACY OF HYPERTHERMIA AS A TREATMENT MODALITY FOR CANCER IS DEPENDENT UPON THE ABILITY TO HEAT THE ENTIRE TUMOR TO 42 DEGREES C OR GREATER. CURRENTLY AVAILABLE COMMERCIAL EQUIPMENT DOES NOT PROVIDE THIS CAPABILITY FOR DEEP-SEATED TUMORS. THE INVESTIGATION, DEVELOPMENT, AND EVALUATION OF PHASED ARRAY MICROWAVE ANTENNA SYSTEMS FOR NONINVASIVELY INDUCING HYPERTHERMIA AT DEPTHS RANGING FROM 5 TO 10 CM IS BEING PROPOSED. IN PHASE I, THE FEASIBILITY OF ENHANCED DEEP LOCALIZED HEATING AND MICROWAVE BEAM STEERING BY PHASE CONTROL WILL BE DEMONSTRATED. A MICROWAVE PATCH ANTENNA WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR USE AS ARRAY ELEMENTS IN CYLINDRICAL, HEMISPHERICAL, AND FLAT CONFORMAL PHASED ARRAY APPLICATORS.PHASE II WILL UTILIZE THE RESULTS OF PHASE I TO PROVIDE DETAILED SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF A HYPERTHERMIA SYSTEM FOR INVESTIGATIONAL EVALUATION IN ANIMALS AND IN HUMANS. THIS EVALUATION WILL PROVIDE THE DATA WHICH WOULD BE NECESSARY FOR COMMERCIAL EXPLOITATION OF THESE ANTENNA SYSTEMS.
