dc.description.abstractRadio-frequency (RF) ablation is commonly used for hepatic carcinoma or liver tumor treatment due to its minimal invasiveness and simplicity. Understanding the science of ablation is valuable for hyperthermia treatment. It is useful in predicting the outcome of RF ablation, minimizing healthy tissue damage and optimizing RF ablation procedure. The work presents the various aspects related to the science of RF ablation, methods to reduce variation in biological simulation and the design and development of a surgical device.
