Analytical validation of COMSOL Multiphysics for theoretical models of Radiofrequency ablation including the Hyperbolic Bioheat transfer equation

, : Analytical validation of COMSOL Multiphysics for theoretical models of Radiofrequency ablation including the Hyperbolic Bioheat transfer equation. Conference Proceedings 2010: 3214-3217

In this paper we outline our main findings about the differences between the use of the Bioheat Equation and the Hyperbolic Bioheat Equation in theoretical models for Radiofrequency (RF) ablation. At the moment, we have been working on the analytical approach to solve both equations, but more recently, we have considered numerical models based on the Finite Element Method (FEM). As a first step to use FEM, we conducted a comparative study between the temperature profiles obtained from the analytical solutions and those obtained from FEM. Regarding the differences between both methods, we obtain agreement in less than 5% of relative differences. Then FEM is a good alternative to model heating of biological tissues using BE and HBE in, for example, more complex and realistic geometries.

The anti-inflammatory effects of globular adiponectin (gAcrp) are mediated by IL-10/heme oxygenase 1 (HO-1)-dependent pathways. Although full-length (flAcrp) adiponectin also suppresses LPS-induced pro-inflammatory signaling, its signaling mechani...

We compare the dynamic nature of anti-herbivore defense in ant-plants to other plant-herbivore systems. Previous studies have neglected the dynamic nature of defense in ant-plants. Changes in environmental cues can trigger modifications in a plant...

Genus Duttaphrynus (Amphibia: Anura: Bufonidae) is endemic to southwestern and southern China and throughout southern Asia. Duttaphrynus phylogeny was also under debate for many years. 12S and 16S rDNAs help us to elucidate Duttaphrynus phylogeny.
