A novel mathematical model for hepatocytes and surrounding volume is presented here; in addition to tracking ion transport and diffusion the new model allows for changing cell volume. Using temporally and spatially varying temperature as an input, this paper shows how differences between diffusion coefficients directly influence increases in cell volume. The multiscale nature of the model presents a possible link from established cellular equations to the observed clinical result of oedema present in thermal treatments of cancer.
