In the last decade, the study of methodologies for heating biological tissue has been an area of most interest in biology and medicine. As a result, the number of electrode solutions has grown in the past years. In this work, we study the capability of using a tubular electrode for heating biological tissue. To test this possibility, liver samples ex-vivo were used and numerical simulations were made. The final results were compared and revealed satisfactory and promising use of tubular electrodes for this kind of application.
