Abstract

The invention relates to a hyperthermia system (30) for treating a patient, comprising an RF power unit, one or more RF antenna's connected to the RF power unit for generating a focused three-dimensional RF field, a controller (37) for adjusting the RF power source and/or the one or more RF antenna's for steering the focused three-dimensional RF field; a sensor for sensing a parameter (34) representative of the focused three-dimensional RF field; a communication environment (36) for inputting data from the said sensor and/or additional information provided by the patient, said communication environment being capable of generating trigger signals to the controller for in use steering the focused three-dimensional RF filed in real time. The invention further relates to a method for generation a focused three- dimensional RF field.
