Abstract

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a popular modality for tumor treatment. However, inexpensive real-time monitoring of RFA within multiple tissue types is still an ongoing research topic. The objective of this study is to utilize multi-frequency electrical impedance data within real-time RFA depth estimation through data fusion schemes that include non-linear machine learning (ML) models. Multi-frequency tissue complex electrical impedance measurements are used to provide input data to the data fusion schemes. Our results show that the fusion schemes significantly decrease both the spread of residuals and the mean of the residuals for depth estimation. Thus, data fusion can be a significant tool for use in improving the performance of ML-based monitoring for RFA.
