Review of coordinate systems, energy conservation equation, and temperature and heat-flux boundary conditions. Capillary blood perfusion as a distributed heat sink. Summary of distributed heat-flux sources associated with one or more of the following: internal and external radio-frequency, ultrasound, and microwave applicators. Surface cooling. Steady-state analytic and numerical solutions to practical problems in one and two dimensions. One or more of these advanced topics: transient responses, large blood vessels as discrete heat sinks, approximate solutions in three dimensions, lumped approximations to distributed systems.
