The theory of the linear, insulated antenna embedded in an electrically dense medium is applied to microwave antennas used for hyperthermia cancer therapy. The pattern of power deposition is computed for a square array of four antennas with a side length of 3 cm under the assumption of no coupling among antennas. The driving frequency is set to seven values between 300 and 915 MHz, and the antenna halflength is set to three values: 3 cm, 6 cm, and the resonant value.
