We have proven that it's possible. Possible to build a model for analyzing physical parameters that exist inside the human body, and analyze them using a computerized simulation based on mathematical models. Although each person's anatomy is different, Berger Thermal Research has successfully developed a mathematical-physical model for predictive assumptions with certain validity, without having to perform vast animal testing at this stage.
Breaking the Human Body Down Into Physical Factors
Which parameters can we analyze in one model? One example is the lesion size and heart muscle temperature during a cardio vascular thermal ablation – a procedure aimed at repairing the heart's electrical pulse in cases of arrhythmia or atrial fibrillation. The model simultaneously takes into account numerous dynamic factors:
- The ablation radio frequency (RF) power
- The catheter's electrode impedances
- The sensor's temperature reading
- The irrigation flow rate inside the catheter
- The blood flow that cools the ablated site
- The motion of the catheter's tip on the tissue as a result the heart beat and respiratory movements
How Can This Work?
What's great about our model is that it can adjust itself during an invasive medical procedure and present physicians with a real time picture of the quality of their performance. As a result, physicians are able to monitor cardiac surgical procedures as they are being performed.
Multi-physicality leaves room for great innovation. Using physics from the field of thermo-dynamics and fluid-dynamics, and combining them with the physiology of the human body, could lead to significant surgical procedure developments, including invasive ablations or irrigation of fluids inside the body. This could be used during a cardiac or neurological procedure, or in trauma cases that require blood vessel ablation.
