Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is a minimally invasive, localized, non-thermal tissue ablation technique that has shown tremendous promise as an effective cancer therapy option. This procedure uses electrodes to apply a series of short-duration, high intensity electric pulses to a targeted tissue region. These pulses can produce irreversible structural changes in the cell membranes within the targeted region, generating a controllable range of cell death .
