Table 1 The defined parameters of tissues composing the subcutaneous tumor model

From: Modeling of electric field distribution in tissues during electroporation

Tissue Erev[V/cm] Eirrev[V/cm] Initial σ for E < Erev σ increase for E > Eirrevvs E < Erev
Stratum corneum and epidermis 400 1200 σSE = 0.008 S/m 100
Dermis and fat 300 1200 σDF = 0.25 S/m 4
Tumor 400 800 σT1 = 0.3 S/m 2.5
σT2 = 0.6 S/m  
σT3 = 0.9 S/m  
Muscle transversal 200 800 σM = 0.135 S/m 2.5
Muscle longitudinal 80 800 σM|| = 0.75 S/m 2.5
