Anthropomorphic Liver Phantom for CT and Ultrasound

By: Katelyn Herbert

Advisor: Dr. Bob Galloway

problem statement
Problem Statement
  • 20,000 people are diagnosed with liver cancer every year.
  • Hepatocellular Carcinomas (HCCs)
  • Surgical resection only available for 20% of patients
radiofrequency ablation
Radiofrequency Ablation
  • Needle-like ablation tool is place inside the tumor
  • High Frequency RF signal heats the surrounding tissue, killing it
  • Image guided surgery

problem statement1
Problem Statement
  • Success of this method is dependent on accurate placement of the tool
    • 44 percent of all liver tumors are indistinguishable from healthy tissue using this method.
    • Finding the center of the three-dimensional object (the tumor) in a two-dimensional view is difficult.
    • Ablation tools made out of flexible materials
      • placement not always accurate
objective
Objective
  • Create a phantom that will test the accuracy of the placement of an ablation tool
    • For training purposes
importance
Importance
  • Correct placement of an ablation tool insures:
    • the tumor tissue will be completely removed
    • Lessen the need for additional surgeries (lessen cost)
the model
The Model
  • Anthropomorphic phantom of the liver
    • Silicone with silicone and barium “tumor” ~ 4 cm
    • Remove air bubbles from “liver tissue” to allow for use with ultrasound
    • Create air bubbles in “tumors” to create contrast
the model1
The Model

270 mm

the model2
The Model
  • Be able to detect the position of the ablation tool
    • Send a high frequency signal from a function generator down the ablation tool
  • Wire around tumors
    • Signal created in mesh by the presence of the ablation tool
  • Higher the signal, the closer the tool to the tumor
the model4
The Model
  • Unable to create a signal large enough using this method (LED)
  • Pairing with antenna and ablation tool less than ideal
  • Developed new plan of action
the model revised
The Model Revised
  • Use of a reed switch

Reed Switch

V+

  • Reed Switches are unique in that they are triggered by magnetic fields
the model revised1
The Model Revised
  • Tiny magnet placed in tip of ablation tool
  • As ablation tool gets within the appropriate distance to the reed switch, it will close and light an LED.

progress
Progress
  • Created anthropomorphic phantom out of silicone for use in CT and ultrasound
    • Removed air bubbles to insure the tumors were visible in the images
current future work
Current/Future Work
  • Test the reed switch with the tiny magnets
    • Gauge how large of a magnetic field is required to trigger it/ how close it needs to be
current future work1
Current/Future Work
  • Insert switch in “tumor” and embed in liver phantom
  • Test with ablation tool
