EXTERNAL heating by conventional electric cautery or by laser provides coagulation of the tissue by conducting the heat from the surface to the inside of the tissue. Conversely, internal heating is the method for necrotizing tumor and hemostasis by means of a dielectric heating electrode, which is inserted into the tissue or tumor. The two methods of administering localized internal thermal therapy of the liver are microwave coagulation therapy (MCT) and radiofrequency ablation (RFA). A venous… CONTINUE READING
