Figure 4

Tissue temperature and cell death penetration for a 15 minute ablation using a 30 volt constant voltage source. Simulation results for a 15 minute ablation using a 30 volt constant voltage source measured from the center of the active electrode. The graph shows temperature (solid) and cell death (dotted) penetration into liver tissue for a range of tissue perfusion rates. The units for tissue perfusion are cubic meters of blood (mb 3) per cubic meter of tissue (mt 3) per second (s).
