About this book


This volume summarizes clinical practice and the results achieved with combined thermoradiotherapy and thermochemotherapy for tumors of the brain, breast, chest wall, head and neck, esophagus, upper and lower abdomen, genitourinary tract, soft tissues and eye, in both adults and children. Special applications, such as intracavitary, interstitial, intraoperative and whole-body hyperthermia, are addressed in detail. Multicenter trials and data analysis receive extensive consideration.
