Dr. Nagi Elabbasi spoke about "Challenges in Radio Frequency Tissue Ablation Simulations at the 2016 NAFEMS European Multiphysics Conference, which took place November 15-16, 2016 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Radio frequency (RF) tissue ablation is commonly used to treat medical conditions involving dysfunctional tissue. Analysis of tissue ablation requires coupled multiphysics modeling involving electromagnetic and heat transfer physics, and possibly fluid flow and structural mechanics. Accurate modeling of tissue ablation poses many challenges, such as coupling the different physics fields and obtaining accurate material and interfacial properties. Veryst has developed computational models that illustrate the sensitivity of RF thermal ablation response and highlight the importance of model validation.
In addition to presenting at the conference, Dr. Elabbasi is a member of the conference's Scientific Committee as well as a member of the Multiphysics Working Group of NAFEMS. Learn more about the NAFEMS conference.
