A radiofrequency applicator is placed in a liver tumor. The expected zone of destruction caused by heat is estimated by a fast approximation method.

Software Assistance for Needle Based Intervention

SAFIR supports the whole interventional workflow from planning to assessment utilizing segmentation, registration, simulation, optimization and visualization methodology. To facilitate fast deployment of new applications targeted at specific clinical questions or scientific projects, SAFIR is designed as a modular framework, which allows for re-using information processing methods and customization of algorithms.
