Evaluation of the Treatment Planning of Interstitial Hyperthermia of Glioblastomas
Currently a phase I study Interstitial hyperthermia combined with radiotherapy in patients with cerebral glioblastoma’ is going on as a collaboration of the University Medical Centre Utrecht and the Academic Medical Centre Amsterdam. Within this study both the clinical feasibility of the treatment with the Multi Electrode Current Source Interstitial Hyperthermia heating system (MECS-IHT)  and the feasibility of the hyperthermia treatment planning system are being evaluated. This note reports on the treatment planning of the first four glioblastoma patients being treated.
