e22229 Background: For local hyperthermia cancer therapy, radio frequency (RF) capacitive heating with a pair of electrodes is one of the most effective methods. RF hyperthermia with a conventional 2-dimensional square plate electrode produces an 'edge effect' - the focusing of the RF current resulting in focal overheating. We designed and propose a novel… CONTINUE READING
