For the applications of localized hyperthermia, an improved magnetic induction-heating system is described. The associated components of this system, for example, coils for generating magnetic field, magnetic circuit for flux path, and ferrite needles for generating heat by magnetic induction, all have been explained. An animal experiment of induction-heating hyperthermia for rat's liver is also carried out, and the consequent pathology of Hematoxylin and Eosin (H&E) stain and NADPH oxidase activity assay are also conducted for evaluation.
