RFA Demonstration Laboratory Matthew Thompson Introduction to PDE Modeling for RFA: Using the mechanics module, let’s simulate the following: 1. Begin by writing a brief abstract of the experiment you conducted in the laboratory. Guidelines for writing an abstract are at the end of this document. RFA probe Tumor Figure 1. RF ablation. Abstract: When a tumor is unresectable, meaning it is unable to be removed by surgery, sometimes a patient’s only other option is radiofrequency ablation (RFA). RF ablation is a therapeutic mechanism that produces resistive heating within the tumor through use of ionic currents. In this experiment the aim was to simulate this process by placing an RFA probe in the center of an artificial body part. Chicken albumen was used to model this artificial tissue. Initiation of the ablation process occurred once the tips at the end of the probe were deployed. Following initiation the temperature at these tips was recorded every 20 seconds until completion of the
