Regional hyperthermia as a critical component in the treatment of solid tumors

New Content Item (4)​​​​​​​Guest Edited by Dr Pirus Ghadjar

The aim of this thematic series published in Radiation Oncology is to collect and present the current knowledge of using regional hyperthermia in treatment strategies for solid tumors.

  1. Here we evaluate the current status of clinical research on regional hyperthermia (RHT) in combination with chemotherapy or radiation therapy in paediatric oncology.
