  • Patent number: 4638436
    Abstract: A system for controlling a hyperthermia treatment device having energy applicators for heating a portion of a patient's body to attain a predetermined temperature protocol for therapeutic treatment of patient tumors. The system monitors energy application and displays a video presentation of correlative temperature data to an operator who responds by adjusting the energy application to achieve the desired treatment protocol. The system further accumulates a hyperthermia treatment data base, and predetermined temperature protocols for the patient are prepared by comparison with data base protocols for similar tumor conditions. Various figures of merit are also determined and stored in the data base and ongoing treatments are comparerd with the data base to characterize the most effective treatment protocol.
