The cryotherapy (or cryoablation) is a procedure aiming at ablating tumors by freezing the tumorous tissues. Specific needles need to be inserted and argon gas is decompressed inside the needles, thus creating iceballs around the tumor. The simulation of the effect of cryoablation is an important focus for interventional radiologists. This simulation presents the positioning of the needles using a Leap Motion system and the resulting iceball. This project is currently lead by Hugo Talbot.
