Microwave tumour ablation; dielectric properties of tumoral tissues; tumour ablation modeling; design of new tools for cancer detection and treatment; intelligent textiles.
Dr. Paré's research focuses on innovations in the use of electromagnetic radiation as energy source for the detection and treatment of medical ailments, primarily cancer. His work aims to improve the efficacy of microwave-assisted ablation procedures for cancer treatment and extend their applicability to broader range of tissues and to tumours at various stages of development. He also is acquiring dielectric properties data of healthy and diseased tissues. The latter will be used as diagnostic tools and will serve as input parameters in the modeling of necrosis processes occurring during microwave-assisted ablation procedures. The overarching objective of his research is the design of novel microwave-assisted ablation tools. Some efforts are devoted to the design of intelligent textiles that respond to microwaves exposure to be used in medical applications.
