This work applies a three-dimensional lattice Boltzmann method (LBM), to solve the Pennes bio-heat equation (BHE), in order to predict the temperature distribution in a spherical tissue, with blood perfusion, metabolism and magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) heat sources, during magnetic fluid hyperthermia (MFH). So, heat dissipation of MNPs under an alternating magnetic field has been studied and effect of different factors such as induction and frequency of magnetic field and volume fraction of MNPs has been investigated. Then, effect of MNPs dispersion on temperature distribution inside tumor and its surrounding healthy tissue has been shown. Also, effect of blood perfusion, thermal conductivity of tumor, frequency and amplitude of magnetic field on temperature distribution has been explained. Results show that the LBM has a good accuracy to solve the bio-heat transfer problems.
