Hysteresis heating for the treatment of tumours.


A method is described whereby, utilising a biocompatible magnetic glass-ceramic material, effective hysteresis heating in living tissue was accomplished. Initial experiments on mice showed that a significant heating effect can be obtained in the ceramic-impregnated regions. An analysis is also given for the projected safe operating field-frequency regime of… (More)
