ablation zone examples
The following are examples of potential ablation results using single and multiple Evident™ MWA Percutaneous Antennas to coagulate tissue prior to resection.
These examples are from ex vivo animal tissue (liver) models. The size of ablation zones may vary in clinical settings.
Ablation Zones of Planar Coagulation

Evident™ MWA System Tissue Verification Testing Protocol
Ablation zone is dependent upon tissue vascularization, type, temperature and impedance.
Ablation zone testing was performed in healthy ex vivo bovine 20°C liver. Ablation zones may vary in clinical settings.
Illustrations of ablation zones are not to scale.
