A bio-impedance probe to assess liver steatosis during transplant surgery.
This work addresses the design of a bioimpedance probe to assess steatosis on the exposed liver in the donor during liver transplant surgery. Whereas typically bioimpedance uses needle probes to avoid surface effects, for clinical reasons a non-penetrative probe is required. In addition the need to ensure that the measurement is representative of the bulk tissue suggests a larger probe than is normally used to ensure a sufficiently large measurement volume. Using a simple model, simulations a...Expand abstract
