Should be considered in order to achieve treatment temperature and time are two factors. High temperature treatment time can be shorter, otherwise time should be lengthened. Temperature uniformity is also very important to avoid cold spots and hot spots. Should be based on the performance of the machine used by the selection indication. The temperature is the key to hyperthermia.
Whole body hyperthermia in recent years, China has begun the application has not yet universal, not include in the specifications. Generally not in clinical hyperthermia alone. Generally associated with radiation therapy and / or chemotherapy and application.
