Water transport during freezing in mammalian liver tissue

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Cryosurgery, which is used clinically in the treatment of liver cancer, involves the in situ destruction of tissues by freezing process. The biophysical response of tissues during freezing have been investigated by both experimental and theoretical techniques. Experiments indicate that significant mass transfer occurs between cells and extracellular space at slower rates of cooling in liver. Accordingly, this paper obtains a more quantitative understanding and prediction of the biophysics of water transport at the tissue levels in liver during freezing.
