The cryosurgical probes being developed today utilize either a single-stage or a two-stage mixed gas Joule-Thomson cycle.
The most recent advancement in cryosurgical probe technology addresses this need by improving the underlying thermodynamic cycle.
This paper describes a computational model of a two-stage JT cycle for use in a cryosurgical probe. Figure 1 provides a schematic of the cryoprobe configuration and Figure 2a provides a schematic of the primary components in the entire system, including numbered thermodynamic states.
