Electroporation is the forefront in tumor ablation. This book presents the basic principles and clinical applications of electroporation, including the latest research results and patient data. A comprehensive approach to the basic science behind the development of this ground-breaking technique and its introduction into clinical practice, the book discusses the entire spectrum of currently available reversible treatments, the emerging irreversible applications, and their impact on patient care. Clinical Aspects of Electroporation is the first book intended for clinicians on this extremely important and rapidly developing field.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book is focused on providing the reader with a concise yet thorough summary of the recent breakthroughs in the field of electroporation. . The book is overall well structured and easy to follow. The book can be used in part as an excellent reference work for biomedical engineers, scientists, and clinicians. . provide as much information as possible to researchers interested in adopting electroporation techniques. . it is definitely a book worth having as a reference."
