Development of Support System for RFA

2015-0302-07

predominance

・Research toward precise cancer ablation by using robot technology 
・Development of sensing method and estimation method for physical quantity related as ablation during operation

background

・Ablation support to hyperthermia (RFA; Radio frequency ablation) for cancer
・Non-ablation of cancer has been reported
・Heat energy to cancer is absorbed by blood flow

summary

・Development of blood flow estimation method during RFA
・Development of temperature distribution simulator which calculates tissue temperature during RFA

application/development

・Development of system which is considered about tissue coagulation and necrosis with temperature rising
・System integration with needle insertion assisted robot 

material

  • Radio frequency ablation
  • Estimation method of blood flow
