We report a case of a 52-year-old woman with a palpable recurrent metastasis of a neuroendocrine carcinoma to the upper outer quadrant of the right breast. For the treatment of this lesion, MR-guided laser-induced thermotherapy was performed with a cooled power laser system (Nd:YAG-Laser). An open 0.2-T MR unit was used for the monitoring of the laser energy delivery to the breast; thus, a thermosensitive fast low-angle shot 2D sequence for MR thermometry was used, so the ablation of the tumor… CONTINUE READING
