The seminar was devoted to study the effect of spatially inhomogeneous electromagnetic field on the synergies in the therapy of malignant tumours and their model-based processes, physical and technical principles of construction applicators antennas for RF mild hyperthermia at which temperature rise in a physiologically acceptable range no more than 1.5-2 centigrade degree. Synergistic factors in mild radiofrequency hyperthermia of malignant tumours are heterogeneous tumour structure, chemotherapy drug, spatially inhomogeneous electromagnetic field, spatially distributed temperature induced.
The main result of the investigations is to justify the feasibility of using spatially inhomogeneous electromagnetic fields in biological tissue irradiated as a synergistic factor of influence.
Based on the model and the experimental data, the spatial in homogeneity of the field in the context of mild radiofrequency hyperthermia of malignant tumours should be characterized by the number of spatial patterns (field clusters) per irradiation area, their size and the effective difference between the two amplitudes.
As a result of a new approach to the design of the radiating antenna applicators, generating a spatially inhomogeneous electromagnetic radiation in the near-field area.
