Electromagnetic heating of breast tumors in interventional radiology: in vitro and in vivo studies in human cadavers and mice.


PURPOSE To assess relevant parameters for the minimally invasive elimination of breast tumors by using a selective application of magnetite and exposure of the breast to an alternating magnetic field. MATERIALS AND METHODS The specific absorption rate (SAR) of different magnetite samples was determined calorimetrically. Temperature elevations based on… (More)
