Focal treatment with radiofrequency, microwave and cryoablation has been increasingly used for the treatment of tumors in patients who cannot undergo surgical resection and in select patients with early stage or oligometastatic disease. Each of these ablation modalities has a unique working principle and biophysics underlying the ablative effect, which largely determines the clinical indication for its application. Irreversible electroporation, a relatively new ablation technique with a… CONTINUE READING
