Abstract

Hyperthermia, meaning the intentional elevation of tissue temperature above 41 degree C, is being intensely researched as a therapeutic tool against cancer, especially when used in combination with radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy. A laboratory microwave hyperthermia system, dedicated to the treatment of superficial tumors in small animals was developed. This system uses a 2. 45-GHz microwave generator and custom applicator to noninvasively heat a mass of tissue approximately 2 cm in diameter and 1. 5 cm in depth. Tissue temperatures at up to four locations are measured using miniature Teflon-encased thermocouples. The microwave generator and thermometry are interfaced with a microcomputer which provides fully-automated hyperthermia treatment reproducible to plus or minus 0. 2 degree C.
