Radiofrequency Therapy Systems, Hyperthermia, Interstitial

Definition : Hyperthermia radio-frequency (RF) therapy systems used for heating of deep-seated tumors. These systems consist of a RF generator, interstitial or intracavitary arrays of implanted electrodes, a temperature sensor, and a feedback system for power control. Interstitial hyperthermia systems are capable of applying energy inside a tumor, making possible more uniform heating than with external applicators. Interstitial hyperthermia systems are commonly used in combination with localized radiation therapy (thermobrachytherapy).
