Thermal treatments of cancer use a localized temperature increase to kill a small volume of cancer cells. Surgery-often the most direct and primary form of cancer treatment-is not preferable in cases of small, poorly defined lesions or tumors deeply embedded within vital organs. For example, cancers of head and neck, sarcoma, melanoma, lung, breast, bladder, cervix, and liver are suitable candidates for thermal treatments and early clinical trials show promising results [1,2].
