Abstract
Hyperthermia has been introduced as a therapeutic method and adjuvant therapy in the treatment of some diseases such as breast and pancreatic cancers. On the other hand, other applications of hyperthermia have been considered. In this article, ways to treat knee pain caused by osteoarthritis, patellar chondromasia, rheumatism, knee infection, etc., have been studied using antenna hyperthermia. For antenna hyperthermia, is using a rectangular microstrip antenna, which is the simplest type of antenna. The antenna considered in this article has conformal conditions and is designed in the shape of a knee structure, to create a suitable knee covering. The antenna considered in this article has conformal conditions and is designed in the shape of a knee structure, to create a suitable knee covering. In addition to the geometric structure of the antenna, which fits the structure of the knee, the resonance frequency of the antenna is in the range of ISM standard frequencies and attempts have been made to place it at 2.4 GHz. On the other hand, to show the thermal pattern created by the antenna, the specific absorption rate of the tissue is investigated and its diagram is simulated by the antenna radiation field.
