Modern diagnosis system has been evolved to equip human being with advanced health-service. In vivo sensors have come up to contribute in this field with its support in miniature, complex operation as implanted in a human body. Implanted sensor solutions like artificial retina, pacemaker and implanted cardioverter defibrillators, insulin pump, glucose monitor-are remarkable inventions in medical science. But, these implanted sensor nodes exhibit temperature at packet transmission or processing time that can be dangerous for surrounding human tissues. With the advancement of wireless communication and sensor network technology, thermal aware routing algorithms have been proposed for this type of sensor network.
