I am confused about the perfusion value of the Bioheatexact() function. The function seems to accept a constant value, a 1x3 (x,y,z) array, and a 3D (x,y,z) matrix. For HIFU, the heat maps in a plane perpendicular to the HIFU beam are always symmetrical. I want to input a perfusion value and have the heat map shape change in the direction of fluid flow. Can you provide any additional information that will help me implement this feature?

Hi renardChien,
All of the material properties in
bioheatExact
must be specified as scalars (i.e., the medium is homogeneous). If you want to model heterogeneous values, you will need to usekWaveDiffusion
