PURPOSE Sonographically-guided Radio-Frequency Tissue Ablation-applied with a percutaneously placed needle can be used for the palliative treatment of primary or secondary liver tumours. In vitro experiments were carried out to establish the relations of the coagulation zone to histologic findings and sonographic appearance. METHOD Fresh bovine livers were obtained and radio-frequency was applied under ultrasound guidance. The coagulation zone was dissected and examined by determining its… CONTINUE READING
