Pre-irradiated chest wall recurrences and other superficial tumors can now also be treated with combined hyperthermia and radiotherapy at Strahlentherapie Bremen. Priv.-Doz. Dr. med. habil. Mirko Nitsche, Radio Oncologist and physician responsible for hyperthermia at the institution, explains the new therapeutic option: "By using hyperthermia, we are able to significantly reduce the dosage of radiotherapy and by means of that treat even patients where a reirradiation with classical dosage would be contraindicated due to cumulative toxicity".

Bremen is the fourth location to employ the new technique, after Lindenhofspital Bern, University Medical Center, Dept of Radiooncology Freiburg/Breisgau and Academic Medical Center Amsterdam.
