Table 4 Lesion Volume with No Tissue Perfusion Values represent the total volume of tissue necroses calculated over the course of the simulated ablation using various cell damage thresholds (D) and isothermal temperatures (IT).

From: Thermal modeling of lesion growth with radiofrequency ablation devices

Source Voltage (Volts) D = 63% (mm3) D = 100% (mm3) IT = 42°C (mm3)1 IT = 47°C (mm3)1 IT = 60°C (mm3) IT = 90°C (mm3)
