The use of electrical field from an AC source with frequency of 100 kHz and voltage range between -8.5 V and 8.5 V in cancer treatment is effective enough to kill breast cancer cells. However, it is not effective enough to kill nashopharing cancer cells. Permittivity distribution of nasopharing area varies because it contains muscle, compact bone, brain, and cavity (cellom). Therefore, the electrical field which is produced by ECCT device will be deflected. In this simulation, 2 electrodes were used, and frequencies of 100 kHz, 150 kHz and 200 kHz and voltages of 6 V, 10 V and 14 V were applied. The results of this research have shown that electrical field from a source with frequency of 100 kHz and voltage of 14 V has the optimal penetration for carcinoma nasopharing.
Key words: ECCT, electrical field, frequency.
