Cancer Ablation Research at Rhode Island Hospital

When Mrs. Hope Tucker's brother contracted lung cancer, she watched in horror as his unsuccessful surgery to remove the tumor left him tied to an oxygen machine. In the end, it only increased his suffering during his last few weeks. So when she was also diagnosed with lung cancer, she chose a different approach.

Thermal Ablation Simulation Research Plan Spring 2014

Garron Deshazer with Dr. Derek Merck, Dr. Damian Dupuy, Dr. Edward Walsh, Dr. Jeom Soon Kim, Dr. William Park


Model and validate thermal profiles produced by a physically based generative model of various microwave ablation procedures (MWA) and correlate these profiles with 3D ablation zone size and shape.
