English term or phrase:Scalp Cooling
"Scalp Cooling may be used for some types of chemotherapy treatments to reduce hair-loss".
Is there any possible hindi equilavalent other than transliteration?

Explanation: Scalp cooling is a method of preventing the loss of hair from the head during some types of chemotherapy. It works by reducing the blood supply to the hair follicles where the hair grows. This means that less of the chemotherapy reaches the hair follicles and so the hair is less likely to fall out.
Scalp cooling itself can sometimes give you a headache and some people find it makes them feel generally cold whilst they are having it. Apart from these slight discomforts there are no side-effects from scalp cooling.
