This study is an attempt to review the theories about the RF and microwave hyperthermia and to get the practical implementation of hyperthermia system on the basic clinical experiments with agar phantoms and four patients. The frequencies of RF power are 8 MHz and 16 MHz, which are effective for the heating of deep-seated and superficial tumors, and microwave is 2.45 GHz, also suitable for the heating of superficial tumors. Even if the long-term effect of clinical applications were not investigated for human living body, it was observee that the RF and microwave hyperthermias are effective for many kinds of cancers in the fixed frequency ranges.
