Dr. Martin Weiser - Mathematical Therapy Planning in Regional Hyperthermia

Department of Numerical Mathematics, Zuse Institute Berlin

Abstract

Regional hyperthermia is a cancer therapy that aims at heating large and deeply seated tumors in order to destroy them or make them susceptible to an accompanying radio or chemo therapy. Heat is induced by absorbing energy from radio waves emanating from several controllable antennas. This talk will give an overview of the mathematical tasks involved in therapy planning, covering the whole spectrum of modeling, simulation, identification, and optimization.
