Table 2 Electrical and Thermal parameters

From: Influence of electrical and thermal properties on RF ablation of breast cancer: is the tumour preferentially heated?

Tissue type Electric Conductivity (1/(Ω·m)) Thermal Conductivity (W/(m·°C)) Specific heat (kJ/(kg·°C)) Density (kg/m3)
Fat 0.057[29] 0.12[25] 3[27],[26] 920[27]
Tumour (carcinoma) 0.412[29] 0.28[25] 3.5[26] 1000[26]
  1. The electrical parameters are measured at 1 MHz.
