The treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is rapidly evolving as developments in loco-regional therapies continue to improve. Image-guided radiofrequency (RF) ablation is established as the treatment of choice for patients with early-stage HCC when transplantation or resection are precluded. Recent refinements in technique have substantially increased the ability of RF ablation to achieve sustained complete response of target tumors in properly selected patients, and new alternate thermal… CONTINUE READING
