Radiofrequency ablation rfa is a type of interstitial hyperthermia that uses radio waves to heat and kill cancer cells in regional hyperthermia various approaches may be used to heat large areas of tissue such as a body cavity organ or limb. Interstitial microwave hyperthermia is used to treat tumors that are deep within the body such as brain cervical breast prostate and neck tumors this technique allows the tumor to be heated to higher temperatures than external hyperthermia techniques allow. Interstitial thermoradiotherapy an experimental cancer treatment that combines interstitial radiation implants brachytherapy and interstitial hyperthermia is in the early stages of investigation in accordance with the procedure used in a current national trial protocol a 60 minute hyperthermia . Performing interstitial hyperthermia requires the use for the bsd 500 built in treatment planning program using this software the size and shape of the tumor can be traced on a grid on the computers screen treatment plans can ten be made by simulating the placement of antennae in and around the tumor
