This book describes recent advances in local hyperthermia discussed at the 18th annual San Francisco Cancer Symposium. Authoritative reviews are presented in the basic aspects of thermobiology, thermotolerance, and physiology of tumor blood flow. Methods and instrumentation used to create heating by magnetic field induction and microwave antennae are described in detail. Finally, the preliminary clinical results reported with hyperthermia as an adjuvant to chemotherapy and radiation therapy will make this review a valuable source of reference for all clinicians dealing with cancer patients.
