A SINGLE-FREQUENCY GENERATOR WITH INTEGRAL TELETHERMOMETER AND A SUITABLE IBM-COMPATIBLE COMPUTER INTERFACE WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CONTROLLED TO PROVIDE A PRE-DETERMINED TEMPERATURE AT A REMOTE SITE. FIVE ANTENNA ASSEMBLIES HAVING DIFFERENT SIZES, COMPATIBLE WITH EXPECTED VARIABILITY IN THE SIZE OF THE EYES UNDER TREATMENT, WILL BE DESIGNED AND EQUIPPED WITH TEMPERATURE SENSORS. THE APPLICATORS WILL BE OF A GEOMETRY FACILITATING SUTURING AT THE BACK OF THE EYE. THE EQUIPMENT WILL BE EVALUATED IN A SPECIAL PHANTOM BOX CONTAINING MUSCLE-MIMICKING MATERIAL.
