Expanding the Bioheat Equation to Include Tissue Internal Water Evaporation During Heating


We propose a new method to study high temperature tissue ablation using an expanded bioheat diffusion equation. An extra term added to the bioheat equation is combined with the specific heat into an effective (temperature dependent) specific heat. It replaces the normal specific heat term in the modified bioheat equation, which can then be used at… (More)
