Malignant brain tumors cannot be effectively managed with conventional therapeutic modalities. The unique anatomical characteristics of the brain, the ease of lesion localization, and the dismal prognosis for this disease offer a viable (although quite formidable) proving ground for the development and tcsting of hyperthermal therapy. This paper deals with three of the four basic problems underlying the administration of intracranial hyperthermia¿heat induction, temperature measurement, and temperature control. The fourth, and as yet unsolved, problem of predicting spatial temperature distributions is discussed.
