Abstract

Hyperthermia is a type of cancer treatment that requires directing a carefully controlled dose of heated nanoparticles to the cancerous tumor that leads to the destruction of cancer cells. Nanoparticles are used as the heat generating sources within the cancer cells and the tumors. The problem in controlling the temperature of nanoparticles is solved by the use of induction heating, which uses a high-frequency alternating magnetic field localized in the area of interest. This article provides an overview of this technique along with the description of its major components, namely, nanoparticles, induction heating setup, and magnetic field strength.
