Characterization of Ablation Thresholds for 3D-Cultured Patient-Derived Glioma Stem Cells in Response to High-Frequency Irreversible Electroporation

Figure 8

Finite element model relates ablation area to electric field threshold in hydrogel system. (a) Geometry and meshing of the finite element model used to simulate treatment of the hydrogel platform. (b) COMSOL model of hydrogel exposed to H-FIRE treatment (800V) shows how electric field changes across the scaffold. (c) Numerical integration of the finite element model of the electric field distribution in the scaffold allows for correlating ablation area to lethal electric field threshold.
