Abstract

BACKGROUND:

A guideline is provided for the implementation of regional deep hyperthermia treatments under strict rules of quality assurance. The objective is to guarantee a comparable and comprehensible method in the treatment and scientific analysis of hyperthermia. The guideline describes regional deep hyperthermia (RHT) and MR-controlled partial body hyperthermia (PBH) of children, young and adult patients. According to this guideline, hyperthermia treatment is always applied in combination with chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy.

METHODS:

The guideline is based on practical experience from several hyperthermia centers. The procedure allows applying jointly coordinated standards and quality control in hyperthermia for studies.

RESULTS:

The guideline contains recommendations for hyperthermia treatments, including indication, preparation, treatment, and standardized analysis.
