This paper compares an in-house dielectric properties measurement system based on the "Stuchly and Stuchly" method with the broadly commercialised Keysight setup and existing literature for the characterization of ablated and non-ablated liver tissue. Measurements were carried out on ex-vivo ovine liver tissue across the frequency range 0.5 - 4.5 GHz. Results show that the in-house "Stuchly Stuchly" method using calibration standards such as deionised water, methanol and open-circuit conditions, offers comparable performance to the proprietary Keysight system. Moreover, results are also comparable to measurements at 2.45 GHz documented in the literature. Being the in-house system suitable for portable setups as reported in the literature, this study shows that measurement of dielectric properties of tissue can be performed even during the thermal ablation procedure.

Abstract

This paper compares an in-house dielectric properties measurement system based on the "Stuchly and Stuchly" method with the broadly commercialised Keysight setup and existing literature for the characterization of ablated and non-ablated liver tissue. Measurements were carried out on ex-vivo ovine liver tissue across the frequency range 0.5 - 4.5 GHz. Results show that the in-house "Stuchly Stuchly" method using calibration standards such as deionised water, methanol and open-circuit conditions, offers comparable performance to the proprietary Keysight system. Moreover, results are also comparable to measurements at 2.45 GHz documented in the literature. Being the in-house system suitable for portable setups as reported in the literature, this study shows that measurement of dielectric properties of tissue can be performed even during the thermal ablation procedure.
