Ferromagnetic alloys, used in the form of "thermoseeds" for surgical implantation, have been developed and used to induce localized hyperthermia in cancerous growths. Alloys of nickel with approx. 4 wt.% Si were chosen for this study because they have Curie temperatures in the desired range of 45-60 degrees C. The thermoseeds were prepared by using either a(More)
