Cancer treatment question

Hi all, one for the Med people here,

One of my co-workers is going to be getting radiation therapy as a follow
up to cancer surgery and the radiation is to be followed by about 30 min of
heat therapy.  I've covered the radiation aspects with this person, but the
heat follow up is a bit of a mystery.  The doctor said something about it
helping the radiation work better.  Can anyone give me a more satisfactory
answer to pass along, please?  

My gratitude and thanks, as always,
