Abstract

The purpose of the work is to develop patient specific treatment analysis for tumor removal procedure using radio frequency ablation. The proposed method increases the efficiency of treatment protocol for patient specific models. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in Indian women. Thermal ablation procedure is to overheat the tissue cells and kills the cancerous tumor using probe. Ablation of tumor is a difficult procedure in case of placement of probe and killing cancerous tissue without much damage to healthy tissues. Directional removal of tumor is essential to avoid damage in surrounding tissue.

This work aims to contribute 3 steps (i) segmentation (ii) building 3D model (iii) Analysis and measurement. Segmentation of tumor is achieved by using MIMICS software. 3D modeling and simulation of thermal ablation treatment procedure using COMSOL MULTIPHYSICS was developed, necrosis of tissue and temperature at various points and position of probe have been evaluated. Temperature variation is analyzed to view the necrosis covering area and to plan for thermal ablation procedure for removal of breast tumor. Various measurement parameters of 3D tumor have been identified for further diagnosis.
