The current state of the art in techniques for the production and control of whole-body and local hyperthermia is discussed. Techniques of radio-frequency, microwave, and ultrasonic local hyperthermia are considered and compared. Problems of thermometry and control system integration are defined, and requisite biophysical data requirements are established. A bibliography is provided to serve both as an introduction to the hyperthermia literature for researchers from other fields and as a convenient compendium of original sources for scientists currently engaged in hyperthermia research.


Presented at the Conference on Hyperthermia in Cancer Treatment, September 15 and 16, 1978, San Diego, Calif.
