Experimental form of cancer treatment using hyperthermia (heat treatment). This Selectotherm machine, developed by Manfred von Ardenne at the Dresden institute, East Germany, uses radio waves to treat malignant tumours. In the early 1960's, it was discovered that cancerous cells were more susceptible to retardation & destruction by heat than normal tissue.
