About the BSD-2000 Hyperthermia System

The BSD-2000 – developed and patented exclusively by BSD – delivers localized
therapeutic heating (hyperthermia) by applying radiofrequency (RF) energy. The
BSD-2000 creates a central focusing of energy that can be electronically
focused to target the shape, size and location of the tumor, thus providing
dynamic control of the heating delivered to the tumor region. The BSD-2000 has
Humanitarian Device Exemption (HDE) marketing approval from the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) for use in conjunction with radiation therapy for
the treatment of cervical cancer patients who are ineligible for chemotherapy.
The BSD-2000 also has CE (Conformité Européenne) Marking approval for the
commercial sale in Europe. CE Marking approval is also recognized in many
countries outside of the EU.
