By J. M. Cosset (auth.), Dr. Michel Gautherie (eds.)

"Internal" hyperthermia is one of those thermotherapy wherein warmth is sup­ plied to tumor tissue in situ. There are 3 varied innovations for professional­ viding inner hyperthermia: (1) interstitial hyperthermia utilizing implanted needle probes, (2) intracavitary hyperthermia utilizing probes brought into average physique cavities, and (3) perfusional hyperthermia by way of ex­ tracorporal blood heating. in comparison with exterior hyperthermia, inner hyperthermia has been preferentially authorised by way of oncologists since it could be extra simply mixed with different kinds of remedy, e. g., interstitial thermotherapy with brachytherapy, or perfusional hyperthermia with che­ motherapy. a number of different types of apparatus for interstitial and intracavitary thermotherapy were built and used rather broadly in medical trials, mostly together with radiation remedy. There are 4 varied tools for generating interstitial or intracavitary hyperthermia, every one on the topic of varieties of heating. such a lot stories were played utilizing radiofrequency electrodes (resistive heating) or coaxial microwave antennas (radiative heating). lately, even though, "hot resource" innovations that depend upon thermal conduction and blood movement convection for warmth shipping have stumbled on medical software. those suggestions comprise ferromagnetic implants activated via sizzling water or via electric potential. within the close to destiny, new tools for in­ terstitial or intraluminal heating established upon complex ultrasonic and laser applied sciences might be developed.
