Hyperthermia is a viable treatment option for a variety of cancer types.
How Hyperthermia Therapy Works
Hyperthermia uses targeted ultrasound heat to disrupt cancer cell membranes and increase blood flow to the tumor, making it more vulnerable both to the body’s natural immune defenses and to other cancer therapies. When paired with chemotherapy or radiation therapy, hyperthermia allows for deeper chemical penetration at a higher concentration rate than otherwise possible. This makes radiation therapy and chemotherapy more effective.
