Procedural sedation and analgesia for respiratory-gated MR-HIFU in the liver: a feasibility study

Abstract

BACKGROUND Previous studies demonstrated both pre-clinically and clinically the feasibility of magnetic resonance-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound (MR-HIFU) ablations in the liver. To overcome the associated problem of respiratory motion of the ablation area, general anesthesia (GA) and mechanical ventilation was used in conjunction with either… (More)
