This paper presents the adequateness of a rectangular spiral shaped patch antenna and a Vivaldi antenna having narrow beam width to use for antenna arrangements in microwave hyperthermia applications. The results obtained from simplified leg model show the adequateness of the small size spiral antenna due to its capability to operate at multi frequencies and narrow beam width. In addition its small lateral size is promising to use it in multi antenna configuration system for microwave hyperthermia application for cancer treatment. © 2011 IEEE.
