Radiofrequency Ablation News and Research

RSS
Thermal ablation is heating tumors so hot that the tumor cells die. It has been studied in many forms, including microwave, laser, high-intensity focused ultrasound, and cryotherapy (freezing below -20 C). Radiofrequency thermal ablation or radiofrequency ablation (RFA) has emerged as the most commonly used technology for thermal ablation in the bone, liver, kidney, lung, heart, breast, lymph nodes, nerve ganglia, and soft tissue.
