Administration of hyperthermia with the Celsius TCS hyperthermia system
The patient lies on a soft treatment bed during the treatment, which is subdivided into 21 fields of equal size. These fields are equipped with 20 placement tiles and a tile electrode (see image left). The position of the tile electrode can be moved over the bed and positioned over the area of the body to be treated.
The arm electrode, which can be seen on the patient’s abdomen (see image right) is held by a rotatable, height adjustable arm and enables optimum positioning over the body.
The body region between the two electrodes is irradiated by radio frequency waves (13.56MHz) during treatment. The different conductivity of healthy and unhealthy tissue produces different energy absorptions. The healthy tissue can simply discharge the energy applied.
