The determination of temperature fields in perfused tissues is an important aspect of hyperthermia treatment planning. The heat transfer process is dependent to a large degree on the blood circulation in the area of interest. During the seminar, two numerical methods of approach to this problem will be presented: the DIVA (DIscrete Vessel Analysis) system developed at University of Utrecht and the alternative method developed by the author. The basic assumptions underlying the methods will be given, the similarities, differences and limitations will be highlighted and, finally, some results of the test simulation conduced with both methods will be compared.
