To evaluate and compare novel robotic guidance and manual approaches based on procedural accuracy, procedural time, procedural performance, image quality as well as patient dose during image-guided microwave thermoablation. The study was prospectively performed between June 2013 and December 2013 using 70 patients. Forty randomly selected patients (group 1) were treated with manual guidance and 30 patients (group 2) were treated using a novel robotic guidance. Parameters evaluated were… CONTINUE READING
