We have studied a palm-sized cryoprobe system and showed that cryosurgery may be an effective treatment for epilepsy. Conventional cryoprobe systems have triple coaxial tubes. Since accurate temperature measurement of the probe tip is indispensable for reliable treatment of cryosurgery,... Read more
