Navigation systems, devices, and intraprocedural software are changing the way interventional oncology is practiced. Before the development of precision navigation tools integrated with imaging systems, thermal ablation of hard-to-image lesions was highly dependent on operator experience, spatial skills, and estimation of positron emission tomography-avid or arterial-phase targets. Numerous navigation systems for ablation bring the opportunity for standardization and accuracy that extends the… CONTINUE READING
