(under subclass 96) Subject matter wherein heating is accomplished by passing electric current through tissue.
(1) Note. In general, the electric current is passed between two electrodes mounted in contact with the tissue to be heated, as distinguished from electromagnetic waves radiated into the tissue. The electrodes can be either conductively coupled to the tissue or capacitively coupled to the tissue (e.g., electrode insulated from tissue).
