Abstract

Encouraged by radiobiological and preliminary clinical reports on hyperthermia, we started in August 1980 to evaluate hyperthermia as an adjunct to radiation therapy in human superficial malignant tumours. Preliminary results were reported earlier (Lindholm et al. 1982). We now present an updated report including patients referred to and accepted for hyperthermia treatment up to November 1984.
