A new noninvasive measurement method is proposed to simultaneously determine the thermal parameters of cylindrical living tissues. The corresponding two-dimensional mathematic model is established based on the Pennes’ bioheat transfer equation. With respect to the measuring points on the surface of the given living tissue, the effects of thermal parameters on the temperature variations, the sensitivity coefficients of the key thermal parameters to the model temperatures and the relativities of these sensitivity coefficients are analyzed and calculated. The results show that the thermal parameters concerned can be estimated with high measuring precision and can be simultaneously estimated. The experimental system of the dynamic tissue phantom is established to validate the presented method. A number of experiments are carried out under different conditions and the experimental results indicate that the measured parameters are in good agreement with the reference values.
