Thermal Ablation Therapy Book Review:

Thermal Ablation Therapy: Theory and Simulation includes detailed theoretical and technical concepts of thermal ablation therapy in the different body organs. The concepts of ablation technology based on the different thermal ablation methods are introduced in the book. Since the radiation pattern and the effect of the heat/cooling depends on the characteristics of the tissues and the size of the tumor, the book studies these factors using different energy sources. The changes in the tissues' mechanical properties due to the thermal denaturation are also discussed. The book emphasizes the mathematical and engineering concepts of the RF and MW energy propagation through the tissues and the heating effect, where the high heating rate produced by the MW systems can overcome the heat-sink effects from nearby vessels, creating more uniform ablation zones. The design and tuning of the MW antennas to deliver energy efficiently to specific organ systems, such as the liver or lung is also studied in this book. The computational modeling of the radiofrequency ablation and the microwave ablation procedures for developing and implementing new efficient ablation in clinical systems is one of the main contents of this book. Numerical simulations for different scenarios of different organs with different size using RF and MW ablation systems with different antennas'/probes design and configurations are extensively included in this book. Numerical techniques for the temperature profile in tissue include the finite integration technique (FIT), finite element method (FEM), finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) and method of moments (MoM). These methods are widely used to discretize the partial differential equations (PDEs) in space and time. Such simulation will be performed in this book by using Matlab software by building finite element models or Comsol software, which is mainly concerned with building physical models to examine the thermal effect of the different antennas design on the tumor tissues and their neighbor normal tissues. COMSOL Multiphysics software is fortified with FEM to provide the required tools to build simulation applications relating to biological materials, physics components selection (electromagnetic and heat transfer), antenna geometry, and meshing. This is efficient to predict the electromagnetic waves propagation from the antennas of arbitrary geometry and to evaluate the antenna performance metrics. Thermal Ablation Therapy: Theory and Simulation also covers energy deposition from the applied electromagnetic fields, and heat generation as well as the subsequent water and vapor mass transfer in the tissues to determine the thermal dose or surviving fraction of the cells. The ablation process stating from locating the tumors using ultrasound, CT, or MR imaging devices till determining the required heating dose and the effect on the tissues with the proper antenna selection is discussed in the book. Then, essentially the patient is turned into an electrical circuit by placing grounding pads on the thighs. The different temperature-dependent and temperature-independent models are also introduced in the book, where the mathematical functions used to model the temperature-dependence of the electrical and thermal conductivities of biological tissue in the ablation systems are presented. A bio-heat model to evaluate the use of high-temperature thermal ablation therapies of diseased tissues is included. A comparison between the different ablation techniques is conducted in the book. This volume also discusses several applications in different real-life thermal ablation therapies. This cutting-edge book highlights the simulation and challenges to design the antenna of the RF and MW ablation probes. Thermal Ablation Therapy: Theory and Simulation includes: highlights on the medical concepts of ablation, tissues types and characteristics, effect of heating and cooling on different tissues and organs, the concept/ advantages/disadvantages of radiofrequency ablation, microwave ablation, antenna design requirements, simulation scenarios of the different cases (different probes and tissues), and finally, the challenges and new perspectives in thermal ablation therapy. Presents the latest mathematical models of the microwave and RF ablation theories Discusses the biological responses and engineering principles by which thermal ablation techniques can provide temperature-elevation within the organs of the human body, including action mechanisms, required equipment, needle characteristics, and treatment techniques Highlights the different techniques of thermal ablation, including radiofrequency ablation, microwave ablation, laser ablation, and ultrasound ablation, nanotechnology, and the different metrics used to evaluate the performance of the used antenna within the ablation needle Provides different simulation scenarios of different tumor sizes in different organs and the effect of temperature on these tumors Includes the limitations, challenges and future perspectives for the design of new antenna probes for thermal ablation techniques Provides demos and sample code using Matlab and Comsol software

Tumor Ablation Book Review:

There is an enormous sense of excitement in the communities of cancer research and cancer care as we move into the middle third of the ?rst decade of the 21st century. For the ?rst time,there is a true sense of c- ?dence that the tools provided by the human genome project will enable cancer researchers to crack the code of genomic abnormalities that allow tumor cells to live within the body and provide highly speci?c, virtually non-toxic therapies for the eradication,or at least ?rm control of human cancers. There is also good reason to hope that these same lines of inquiry will yield better tests for screening, early detection, and prev- tion of progression beyond curability. While these developments provide a legitimate basis for much op- mism, many patients will continue to develop cancers and suffer from their debilitating effects, even as research moves ahead. For these in- viduals, it is imperative that the cancer ?eld make the best possible use of the tools available to provide present day cancer patients with the best chances for cure, effective palliation, or, at the very least, relief from symptoms caused by acute intercurrent complications of cancer. A modality that has emerged as a very useful approach to at least some of these goals is tumor ablation by the use of physical or physiochemical approaches.

Glioma Book Review:

The past three decades have been marked with huge enthusiasm from scientists and professionals in an effort to find a cure for glioma disease. Methods to confirm the kinds and grades of glioma have taken a path from classical macro- to microscopic pathohystological confirmation of tumors, through morphological-histological, molecular, and genetic diagnosis. Surgically, progress was made possible with the development and use of technological aids, for example neuronavigation, cortical mapping, electrocorticography, neuromonitoring, functional and intraoperative MRI, magnetoencephalography, etc. Great hope was placed on the extension of tumor resection and popular supratotal resection. Significant progress has been made generally in glioma treatment with the use of modern radiotherapy and new chemotherapeutics. What do we want to see for the future? By way of stem cells, a specific medicine will be produced, individualized for the particular patient, and by using a microcapsule it will be implanted into the brain zone affected by the tumor by way of robot surgery and injection needle. This is not at all an unrealistic expectation in the next decade or two.

Irreversible Electroporation Book Review:

Non-thermal irreversible electroporation is a new minimally invasive surgical p- cedure with unique molecular selectivity attributes – in fact it may be considered the first clinical molecular surgery procedure. Non-thermal irreversible electro- ration is a molecular selective mode of cell ablation that employs brief electrical fields to produce nanoscale defects in the cell membrane, which can lead to cell death, without an effect on any of the other tissue molecules. The electrical fields can be produced through contact by insertion of electrode needles around the undesirable tissue and non-invasively by electromagnetic induction. This new - dition to the medical armamentarium requires the active involvement and is of interest to clinical physicians, medical researchers, mechanical engineers, che- cal engineers, electrical engineers, instrumentation designers, medical companies and many other fields and disciplines that were never exposed in their training to irreversible electroporation or to a similar concept. This edited book is designed to be a comprehensive introduction to the field of irreversible electroporation to those that were not exposed or trained in the field before and can also serve as a reference manual. Irreversible electroporation is broad and interdisciplinary. Therefore, we have made an attempt to cover every one of the various aspects of the field from an introductory basic level to state of the art.

Radiofrequency Ablation for Small Hepatocellular Carcinoma Book Review:

This book provides a comprehensive guide to the treatment of small hepatocellular carcinoma (sHCC) using a minimally invasive technique: radiofrequency ablation (RFA). RFA has emerged as a new treatment modality and become the main modality of locoregional therapy. Extensive clinical research indicates that RFA is as effective as surgical resection for sHCC, and it has the advantage of being less invasive. However, the outcomes after RFA are largely dependent on the operators’ experience- known as the “learning curve”. This book presents the characteristics of sHCC and discusses why sHCC is the best candidate for RFA. Then it introduces all the commercially available RFA systems, and their working principles, advantages, disadvantages and so on. It goes on to demonstrate how to perform RFA under the guidance of ultrasound, CT, laparoscopy, or during open operation. Finally, it discusses the radiologic assessment and follow‐up after RFA, as well as adjuvant therapies and clinical trials on RFA. The authors are experts from the fields of pathology, radiology, surgery, and gastroenterology, as well as manufacturers. With this book, readers gain have a clear idea of when and how to do RFA. It aims to standardize and generalize the procedure of RFA, which will be very helpful in improving the outcome of RFA for sHCC.

Hepatocellular Carcinoma Book Review:

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) currently ranks as the third most common cause of death. As the primary malignancy of the liver is directly related to an underlying liver condition, its incidence and profile are expected to change soon. While effective prevention programs and antiviral therapies for hepatitis B and C will lower the incidence of HCC, emerging socioeconomic issues will deliver new at-risk populations. Moreover, diagnostic techniques and protocols have undergone significant advancements. Reliance on contrast enhanced ultrasound has been re-evaluated, imaging methods being considered as sufficient diagnostic tools. Molecular characterization remains desirable, since chemotherapeutic agents still have limited applicability. In light of recent diagnostic advancements and novel therapeutic solutions, it is our belief that a comprehensive update on recent paradigm shifts and interesting upcoming developments is highly needed.
