Development and evaluation of a 27MHz multi-electrode current-source interstitial hyperthermia system
Hyperthermia is the elevation of tissue temperatures to 40-45 °C and is mainly applied as a cancer therapy in combination with other treatment modalities, such as radiotherapy or chemotherapy. A detailed introduction to the biology, physics and clinical application of hyperthermia is given in: An introduction to the practical aspects of clinical hyperthermia, edited by Field and Hand and in: Thermoradiotherapy and Thermochemotherapy (volumes 1 and 2), edited by Seegenschmiedt, Fessenden and Vernon (Springer-Verlag, Berlin, Heidelberg 1995).
