Following an introductory overview, Hyperthermia In Cancer Treatment: A Primer comprehensively describes the biological reasons for associating hyperthermia with radiation and chemotherapy and the biological and clinical effects of hyperthermia on cancerous and normal tissues. The volume's 20 chapters are arranged in three principal parts: physical and methodological studies, biologic principles, and clinical studies.

Editorial Reviews

Aus den Rezensionen:"Dieses herausragende Fachbuch . präsentiert auf höchstem Niveau die Beiträge . Dies ist . eine Fachenzyklopädie . Im ersten Teil werden die physikalischen Aspekte und Grundlagen der Hyperthermie dargestellt. . Der zweite Teil informiert sehr anschaulich und teilweise auch spannend . über die biologischen Aspekte der Hyperthermie . Insgesamt eine sehr gelungene 'state of the art' Präsentation aktuellen Wissens zum Thema Hyperthermie . Für jeden Anwender der Hyperthermie in der Tumortherapie eigentlich ein Pflichtwerk, eher geeignet zum Nachschlagen und besseren Verständnis der oft komplizierten Zusammenhänge." (Dr. med. Peter Holzhauer, in: Deutsche Zeitschrift für Onkologie, 2007, Issue 3, S. 143)
