Application of Electromagnetic Waves in Cancer Treatment by Hyperthermia


Hyperthermia is a treatment mechanism by which cancer cells can be damaged. In this mode of treatment, electromagnetic fields are used for increasing the temperature of malignant tissues at sufficiently high level for destroying them. In this paper, major problems of hyperthermia and some proposed solutions are presented.
