Magnetic Hyperthermia

– Magnetic hyperthermia harnesses the magnetic heating power of micro or nanoparticles.

– These particles generate heat when exposed to a high frequency alternating magnetic field due to magnetic rotational dynamics.

– The “activating” alternating magnetic field can be applied remotely, at a distance and non-invasively.

– Heat generated by the particles can be used as a therapy to kill cancer cells.

– For more information about magnetic hyperthermia please see our resources page.
