Basic Study

Transit of the subject temperature by microwave irradiation

Figure below shows a typical throughout transit of the subject (NSCLC)  temperature from the baseline temperature, peak temperature, and returning to the baseline value. Since microwave was repeatedly irradiated 3 times in a short period of time (5-sec) and 2-sec intervals, the temperature increased into the targeted therapeutic range (around 42.5°C) simultaneously after irradiation. Then it gradually decreased into the baseline value approximately in 100 sec (usually less than 2 min). With this stepwise heating and interval regimen, the temperature was accurately controlled throughout the entire in vitro experiments.
