The identification of the temperature-dependent perfusion coefficient in the one-dimensional transient bio-heat conduction equation is investigated. If Neumann boundary conditions are prescribed, then the additional measurement sufficient to render a unique solution is a temperature measurement on a part of the boundary. A numerical approach based on a Crank-Nicolson-type finite-difference scheme combined with the first-order Tikhonov regularization method is developed. Numerical results are presented and discussed.
