The morphology of cancerous breast tissue is characterized by tightly packed groups of small malignant cells, as found in most duct cell carcinoma. This special structure affects the osmotic responses of the cells to freezing and hence their probability of damage from cellular dehydration or intracellular ice formation. A mathematical model has been developed to study the microscale damage to these breast cancer cells during cryosurgery by accounting for their special structure. The model is… CONTINUE READING
