  3. 3. Feedback thermotherapy for benign prostatic enlargement : A clinical and methodological evaluation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lennart Wagrell; Uppsala universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; benign prostatic hyperplasia; transurethral microwave thermotherapy; feed-back thermotherapy; intraprostatic blood-flow; intraprostatic temperature; bladderneck; PET; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi; kirurgi; särskilt urologi; Urology;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis was to evaluate a new treatment strategy for symptomatic benign prostatic enlargement.The transurethral thermotherapy (TUMT) antenna design was studied. The design influences the heating-profile significantly and the absorbed energy in a target volume were only about 13-20% of the energy delivered. READ MORE

  4. 4. Physical Aspects of Thermotherapy - A study of heat transport with a view to treatment optimisation

    University dissertation from Department of Radiation Physics, Lund university

    Author : Johan Olsrud; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; magnetic resonance; non-invasive; temperature; coagulation; prostatic; menorrhagia; liver tumour; finite element method FEM ; thermal conductivity; intracavitary; interstitial; laser; Thermotherapy; hyperthermia; MRI; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Medicin människa och djur ; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Local treatment with the aim to destruct tissue by heating (thermotherapy) may in some cases be an alternative or complement to surgical methods, and has gained increased interest during the last decade. The major advantage of these, often minimally-invasive methods, is that the disease can be controlled with reduced treatment trauma and complications. READ MORE

  5. 5. Development of Feedback Microwave Thermotherapy in Symptomatic Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

    University dissertation from Department of Urology, Clinical Sciences, Lund University
