Then the temperature level will be increased to approximately 42 - 45 degrees C. The heat applied during the procedure improves blood circulation, making the tumor cells more receptive to radiation therapy, and destroying them efficiently and more rapidly. The use of hyperthermia, and low-dose radiation, has made this the most efficient cancer treatment today.
