Magnetic hyperthermia is a type of cancer treatment that utilizes the heat generated from magnetic particles to destroy cancer cells selectively. The heating efficiency depends strongly on the magnetic properties of the particles. In this paper, we experimentally verify the heat generation efficiency of magnetite particles of various diameters and propose the properties of magnetite particles suitable for magnetic hyperthermia.
