A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11903633B2) describes a radiofrequency (RF) ablation system designed to perform RF ablation procedures with precision and efficiency. The system includes an energy source, an energy delivery device, two or more sensors measuring factors related to the procedure, and a processor executing various operations. These operations involve creating a lesion at the target site based on specific factors, monitoring factors during energy delivery, adjusting energy levels based on thresholds, and switching control between different factors to enhance lesion development. The system aims to optimize the ablation process by ensuring factors like power, current, voltage, and tissue temperature are carefully monitored and controlled throughout the procedure.

Furthermore, the patent details a method for performing RF ablation procedures using an RF probe. The method involves delivering energy to create a lesion at the target site, monitoring operational factors related to the procedure, determining operating thresholds, and adjusting energy delivery accordingly. Additionally, the method includes collecting operational data from the RF probe, inputting this data into a deep learning network for training, and utilizing the network to control energy delivery based on the operational factors. By integrating advanced monitoring, control, and machine learning techniques, the system and method described in the patent aim to enhance the precision and effectiveness of RF ablation procedures, ultimately improving patient outcomes and procedural success rates.
