A detailed and a simplified model of a lesioning electrode was made using the finite element method. 15 simulations of the lesioning procedure were performed for each model and the resulting lesion volumes were compared in order to investigate if the simplified model is adequate. The simplified model resulted in a very slight overestimation of the volume compared to the detailed model. It was thus concluded that the simplified model is adequate for simulations.
