Considering skin physiology in capacitive-coupled hyperthermia
Dominant technical solution for oncological hyperthermia devices is capacitive-coupling. However, it has the challenge of overheating the surface of adipose layers and burning cutaneous structures. The main technical solution of this is the intensive cooling of the surface. Our objective is studying the physiology and effect of the active cooling of the skin in capacitive-coupled hyperthermia technologies.
