Paper Title:
Patient-Specific Finite Element Model of a Spinal Tumor for Thermal Ablation
  Abstract

Objective: The purpose of this research is to establish a patient-specific finite element model of a spinal tumor and provide a preparation for the later numerical simulations. Method: Two steps, including three-dimensional reconstruction of the spinal tumor and its associated tissues, grid generations, are carried out for the establishment of the finite element model. Results: A patient-specific finite element model including a spinal tumor and its associated tissues is established. Conclusion: Patient-specific finite element model is a preparation for the surgical planning on thermal ablation, and the later numerical simulations will provide beneficial tutorials for surgeons.
