BACKGROUND Techniques based on radio frequency (RF) energy have many applications in medicine, in particular tumour ablation. Today, mammography screening detects many breast cancers at an early stage, facilitating treatment by minimally invasive techniques such as radio frequency ablation (RFA). The breast cancer is mostly surrounded by fat, which during(More)
A large and increasing number of women in the western world will at some point during their life be investigated morphologically for breast cancer. Fine needle aspiration (FNA) is one morphological method which is considered to be the fastest, cheapest and the most patient-friendly approach. Nevertheless, the technique has not gained major clinical success(More)
OBJECTIVE Minimal invasive methods, such as transurethral microwave thermotherapy (TUMT), are economical and have modest side effects compared with transurethral electro-resection of the prostate (TUR-P). The treatment results from different TUMT-systems vary. Follow-up studies on each system type are therefore necessary. The objectives of this study are to(More)
A large and increasing number of women in the western world will at some point during their life be investigated morphologically for some type of breast lesion. Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) is one morphological method which is considered to be the fastest, cheapest and the most patient-friendly approach. However, the frequency of conclusive samples using(More)
