PURPOSE This paper investigated the effects of thermal ablation treatment on imaged X-ray computed tomography (CT) Hounsfield units (HU), for the purpose of monitoring tissue denaturation and coagulation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eight phantoms of water, oil, and chicken serum albumin as well as 15 ex vivo tissue samples were heated by applying high… CONTINUE READING
