It is our pleasure to announce a special issue featured in the journal of Biomedical Engineering Online.
The issue captures the latest research on treating deep-seated tumors either by Electrochemotherapy (ECT) or Irreversible Electroporation (IRE). In this special issue, several of the papers highlight recent efforts to address some of the current challenges associated with treating deep-seated tumors using electroporation-based therapies.
This issue is a result of a special session, which was organized by COST TD1104 Action EP4Bio2Med (www.electroporation.net) at the MBEC2014 6th European Conference of the International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering held in Dubrovnik, Croatia from September 7-11, 2014. It hosted a number of distinguished speakers from around the world. The presentations were grouped into three topics: i) clinical experience using electroporation based treatment of deep-seated tumors; ii) modeling and treatment planning for deep-seated tumors using electroporation; and iii) prognostic imaging in deep-seated tumors using electroporation.
Professors Miklavcic and Davalos served as guest editors and the journal is available at: http://www.biomedical-engineering-online.com/supplements/14/S3
