Treatment of Superficial Neoplastic Lesions Using Hyperthermia, Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy
At the Special Department for Radiotherapy of the Community Hospital of Vienna-Lainz, a device for the treatment of superficial neoplastic lesions (down to 3 cm) was installed in October 1985. Since then, over 60 patients have been subjected to a combined modality treatment of radiotherapy (RT) and/or chemotherapy (ChT) with local hyperthermia (HT) in addition (Streffer et al. 1978; Hahn 1979).
