In our present study, the residual thermal energy was defined as the thermal energy released from the ablation area when the temperature after ablation gradually decreases to the body temperature.
By modulating the power and treatment time, it might be possible to increase/decrease the ablation area. It is important to address the importance of the improvement of FEM models in order to use it as a tool for treatment planning.
The RFA needle was localized in real time under CT guidance, and then the electrode needle was inserted into cancer and push out internal umbrella-like hook-shaped cluster electrode 3-5 cm slowly according to ablation area and the adjacent structure.
"In 1965, the ablation area of Khatling trunk glacier orientation was towards the south.
The extent of ablation area was presumed by the echogenic change around the antenna.
published that ablation area was larger than conventional methods by preventing any possible hydrocarbons that in adjacent tissue of electrode by using the Cool-wet tip (CWT) made by complexly applying coolant circulation system and the discharge of normal saline solution.10,11 In this study, the treatment area of tumor after radiofre- quency ablation was larger in CWT than 15 G and the treatment area ratio before and after treatment was also larger in CWT.
The depth of thermal coagulation zone was measured at the smooth ablation area under microscope.
The laser ablation recipes were set up in such a way that with an increasing number of pulses, the ablation area increases.
'There should be two parts to a glacier: an accumulation area and an ablation area'.
MW can ablate areas around big hepatic vessels (approximately 10 mm) and even in high perfusion tissues; it creates large ablation areas (24,25).
MWA advantages include ablation of larger ablation areas in faster ablation times, with fewer applicator insertions compared to RFA.[sup][14] Furthermore, no grounding pads are needed avoiding the possibility of skin burns.
