Three Chinese hospitals plan to install BSD-2000 hyperthermia systems

BSD Medical : 03 June, 2008  (Company News)
BSD Medical is installing three new BSD-2000 hyperthermia systems in China.
The new hospitals adding BSD-2000 systems to their cancer treatment programmes include the Liaocheng City Hospital, located in Shandong Province, the Qujing No 1 Hospital in Kunming City, located in Yunnan Province and the Nanchong Central Hospital in the city of Nanchong, located in the Sichuan Province.

China has used clinical hyperthermia in the treatment of cancer for a number of years, and has several thousand simple hyperthermia cancer therapy systems in place. The market objective for BSD Medical in China is to expand and upgrade the existing demand for clinical hyperthermia equipment to the advanced features of the BSD-2000.

The BSD-2000 delivers precision-focused RF energy into cancerous tumours, including those located deep in the body, raising the tumour temperature to levels required to administer hyperthermia therapy to destroy cancer cells with heat and increase the effectiveness of radiation therapy. Research has also shown promising results from the use of hyperthermia therapy in combination with some chemotherapy agents, and for tumor reduction prior to surgery.
