PURPOSE To determine whether placement of marking coils at biopsy of small renal neoplasms to facilitate localization at subsequent radiofrequency (RF) ablation is safe and can reduce fluoroscopy time during the ablative procedure. MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study was approved by the hospital institutional review board and was compliant with HIPAA. The requirement to obtain informed consent was waived. A search of the renal RF ablation database (235 patients) identified 23… CONTINUE READING
