Radiofrequency Therapy Systems, Tumor Treatment

Definition : Radiofrequency therapy systems designed to disrupt the division of cancer cells by delivering alternating electrical fields. These systems typically consist of a wearable unit including a battery- operated radiofrequency generator, electrodes appropriate (usually placed on the scalp) to deliver radiofrequency waves in two different directions, and connecting cables. Tumor treating radiofrequency therapy systems are intended to destroy cancer cells by physical disruption(i.e., by interfering with microtubule dynamics and/or by destruction of dividing cells) rather than chemical means without damaging normal cells; the systems are intended mainly to attenuate tumor cell division and/or destroy tumor cells in brain tumors (e.g., gliobastomas).
