Abstract: In this paper, a mathematical model describing the process of non-Fourier heat transfer in biological tissues for generalized coordinate system during thermal ablation by electromagnetic radiation with Gaussian external heat source is studied. The boundary value problem governing this process has been solved using hybrid numerical method taking Legendre wavelet basis function. The result obtained from finite element Legendre wavelet Galerkin method (FELWGM) is compared with exact analytical solution and shows a good agreement. The effect of variability of time, generalized coordinate system, location of tumor or cancer, relaxation time and external heat source coefficient on temperature distribution is discussed in detail. It has been observed that treatment of tumor or cancerous cell is independent of the generalized coordinate system at the thermal ablation position. © 2015 The Authors.
