Abstract:

"Focusing on applications in cancer treatment, this book covers basic principles, practical aspects, and clinical applications of thermal therapy. An overview of the fundamentals shows how use of controlled heat in medicine and biology involves electromagnetics, acoustics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, and imaging sciences. The book discusses challenges in the use of thermal energy on living tissues and explores genetic, cellular, and physiological responses that will help in combating cancer. It also highlights recent advances, including the treatment of solid tumors using image-guided thermal therapy, microbubbles, nanoparticles, and other cutting-edge techniques. Covers the basic physics of thermal therapy and practical aspects of advanced pre-clinical and clinical systems. Gives an overview of heat transfer, thermal dose models, practical invasive and non-invasive thermometry, and numerical modeling for simulation and treatment planning. Presents the state of the art in clinical thermal therapy systems. Discusses the latest advances in thermoacoustic imaging, non-invasive thermometry, MRI-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound, and enhanced drug delivery using liposomes and hyperthermia. Includes chapters on cutting-edge topics such as magnetic nanoparticles for cancer therapy and thermal therapy applications of microbubbles"--Provided by publisher.
