Aim of the paper is to investigate the dynamic response of heat transfer in blood flow through artery under stenotic condition. The blood flowing through artery is assumed an incompressible, fully developed and Newtonian. The non-linear unsteady flow phenomena are governed by the Navier-Stokes and energy equations. All these equations together with the appropriate boundary conditions describing the present mathematical model following the radial coordinate transformations and solved numerically by using finite difference method. The results of the present study show that the effect of heating and cooling on the temperature distribution inside artery during hyperthermia and cryosurgery. This work may enhance current understanding of the factors that determine the effect of hyperthermia and cryosurgery treatment on tumor tissue.
