Predicting the coagulation volume induced by microwave ablation of hepatocellular carcinoma: the role of deposited energy, < em > ex-vivo < /em > bovine liver charts and central hyperdense area on post-treatment CT

CONCLUSIONS: The average dimensions of the ablation zone induced by the considered system on HCC increase linearly with the deposited energy and are fairly well predicted by the corresponding ex-vivo dimensions. The ratio between each linear dimension of A and C zones was found to be roughly constant over a large deposited energy span, both ex-vivo and in-vivo.PMID:34927518 | DOI:10.1080/02656736.2021.1986642
