RADIO-FREQUENCY LESIONING AND NAVIGATION IN THE BRAIN Simulation, experimental and clinical studies

Abstract

Radio-Frequency (RF) lesioning, or RF ablation, is a method that uses high frequency currents for thermal coagulation of pathological tissue or signal pathways. The current is delivered from an electrode, which also contains a temperature sensor permitting control of the current at a desired target temperature. In the brain, RF lesioning can e.g. be used… (More)
