BSD company representatives made presentations on three topics entitled: (1) "Deep Adaptive-Phased-Array 3D steering of RF power with invasive E-field probe targeting," (2) "Evaluation of an Annular Phased Array of microwave dipole antennae as a breast applicator" and (3) "Twin spiral microwave/RF applicator for superficial hyperthermia.
The BSD-2000 overcomes such limitations by heating the tumor from inside out, employing a series of patented annular phased array radio frequency antennae that produce energy waves, which pass harmlessly through the body," said Frost & Sullivan research analyst A.
BSD Medical Corporation is primarily engaged in clinical hyperthermia systems for cancer treatment in combination with radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy based on the Company's patented annular phased array microwave technology.
The system capitalizes on BSD's patented three-dimensional adaptive electronic annular phased array (APA) focusing which optimizes treatment of deep tissue tumors.
Regarding the study rationale, the report states that "Hyperthermia was given approximately 1 hour after radiation utilizing radio-frequency (RF) annular phased arrays driven and controlled by the BSD-2000.
