Table 2 Cases, length of the electrode used, timings, and the resulting ablation diameters from the radiological measurements and the simulations

From: Computer 3D modeling of radiofrequency ablation of atypical cartilaginous tumours in long bones using finite element methods and real patient anatomy

Case Electrode length (cm) Time (min) > 60 °C Time (min) at 90 °C Ablation shortest (mm) Ablation other (mm) Ablation longest (mm) Simulation shortest (mm) Simulation other (mm) Simulation longest (mm)
