Many reports suggest that hyperthermia is very effective treatment for tumor therapy. In this work, MR compatible RF hyperthermia system is presented for a 3.0 T MRI. Phantom and animal experiments have been conducted and the results compared with the simulations results for tumor and tissue model. They are in very good coincidence with each other, which confirms the utility and feasibility of the MR compatible RF hyperthermia system with capacitive driving.
