In this part of our website we will discuss very specialized topics that are the result of research undertaken to understand and implement the behavior of the cold in the tissues. That's right "issues" .
Will be described more indicative work of scholars and researchers who have ventured in this specific field of cryosurgery. The study we present, is housed in posters that were displayed in the Faculty of Mathematics of the University of Genoa.
It' a set of reports that summarize the topics and main steps of a publication made by the department ( DIMA) of the Faculty itself .
(Giovanni Giorgi, Leopoldo Avalle, Massimo Brignone, Michele Piana and Giacomo Caviglia. An optimization approach to multiprobe cryosurgery planning. Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering May 2011; 00: 1–14.)
I remember from few years this Faculty has studied, thanks to the foresight of Professors Michele Piana and Giacomo Caviglia and their team, simulations of diffusion of low temperatures in biological tissues.
This work, carried out by Dr. Giovanni Giorgi and colleagues addresses an optimal methodology for determining the number of cryoprobes and their position in a hypothetical biological tissue afflicted with cancer.
The process simulation uses strategies that take the ants in their path in search of food .
The results were encouraging and stimulus to continue towards objectives ever more real and effective.
