Local or locoregional hyperthermia exposes a smaller part of the patients body to radio waves that cause molecular friction and overheating mostly in tumorous sites.
The treatment heats the organ affected by cancer to temperatures of between 42 and 43°C (107-111°F) using electromagnetic waves with a frequency of 13,56 MHz.
Cancer cells exposed to this frequency start to die as a result of that heat stress. Healthy cells absorb less energy at 13,56 MHz and warm up only slightly without being damaged.
After just one treatment with local deep hyperthermia, white blood cells are significantly more active than before the hyperthermia treatment.
