In this paper we report on the application of Fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) for temperature monitoring during radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for tumor treatment. A proper configuration with several FBG sensors deployed close to the region reached by RF discharges has been developed to monitor the necrotized area. Our ex-vivo experiments on animal kidney and liver confirm that we were able to monitor the temperature with a resolution of 0.1 °C during a series of different and consecutive RF discharges with the laparoscopic bipolar radiofrequency device Habib 4x.

Abstract

In this paper we report on the application of Fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) for temperature monitoring during radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for tumor treatment. A proper configuration with several FBG sensors deployed close to the region reached by RF discharges has been developed to monitor the necrotized area. Our ex-vivo experiments on animal kidney and liver confirm that we were able to monitor the temperature with a resolution of 0.1 °C during a series of different and consecutive RF discharges with the laparoscopic bipolar radiofrequency device Habib 4x.
