Research today is focused on improving the cryosurgical planning tools that are used to optimize the placement of these probes, monitoring the formation of the cryolesion, increasing the rate of cooling that can be provided from each probe, and identifying chemical additives that make tumors more vulnerable to the freezing process.
Optimization of probe placement using sophisticated finite element models of the cryolesion formation process is an active area of research.
