Northeast Radiation Oncology Center to offer hyperthermia therapy

BSD Medical : 18 September, 2007  (New Product)
Northeast Radiation Oncology Center in Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA, has purchases and installed a BSD-500 hyperthermia therapy system.
The new system will be used to increase the Center’s cancer therapy technology, particularly in treating advanced and recurrent cancer patients. The BSD-500 delivers hyperthermia (elevating the tumor temperature) through the use of microwave energy, helping to address the limitations of radiation therapy.

“This new technology, when coupled with radiation, will give us a new weapon against superficial tumours” said Dr Baikadi of Northeast Radiation Oncology Center.

The BSD-500 provides superficial hyperthermia, which is used to non-invasively treat cancerous tumors located within a few centimetres of the surface of the body, such as melanoma and recurrent breast cancer. The system is also able to deliver interstitial hyperthermia therapy for treating certain other tumours.

“We are pleased to welcome Northeast Radiation Oncology Center as a new proponent of hyperthermia therapy for cancer,” said Hyrum A Mead, president of BSD Medical. “Northeast Radiation Oncology Center is known for treating cancer patients with the most advanced treatment options available. We are excited to be providing the benefits of hyperthermia therapy to their patients.”
