Application of new technology in clinical hyperthermia.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Two areas of technical progress related to hyperthermic oncology are presented: (1) numerical modelling of absorbed power and temperature distributions; and (2) non-invasive thermometry using magnetic resonance imaging. The results represent achievements made during the past 5 years at Duke University Medical Center's Departments of Radiation Oncology and Radiology. They represent examples of progress in the technology of hyperthermia that have potential for greatly improving the delivery, monitoring and assessment of clinical hyperthermia.
