In the past decade, there have been renewed interests in using magnetic nanoparticles as heating agents when subjected to an alternating magnetic field in cancer treatments. Due to the technical advancement in manufacturing nano-sized magnetic particles, nanoparticle hyperthermia has emerged as an attractive alternative to costly and risky surgical procedures because of its few associated complications and targeted delivery of thermal energy to the tumor.
