Research Group Medical Modeling and Simulation

Our research focuses on the development of bio-physical models of processes in the human body with partial differential equations and numerical mathematics. One the one hand we develop approaches for the simulation and the optimization of therapies. On the other hand we investigate the modeling of pathological processes and their interaction with therapeutical devices or drugs.

Radio-Frequency Ablation

Radio-frequency (RF) ablation is a local and minimally invasive thermo-ablation technique for the treatment of tumor diseases. Our current investigation contains the improvement of the simulation model, and an optimization of the position and orientation of the RF probe. Moreover, an analysis of the sensitivity of the optimal probe placement with respect to uncertain tissue properties, and the development of a method for identifying patient individual tissue parameters are fields of our ongoing research.
