Magnetic fluid hyperthermia (MFH) is a minimally invasive procedure that destroys cancer cells. It is based on a superparamagnetic heat phenomenon and consists in feeding a ferrofluid into a tumor, and then applying an external electromagnetic field, which leads to apoptosis. The strength of the magnetic field, optimal dose of the ferrofluid, the volume of the tumor and the safety standards have to be taken into consideration when MFH treatment is planned. In this study, we have presented the novel complementary investigation based both on the experiments and numerical methodology connected with female breast cancer. We have conducted experiments on simplified female breast phantoms with numerical analysis and then we transferred the results on an anatomically-like breast model.
