Ultrasound-guided microwave thermotherapy on a VX-2 carcinoma implanted in rabbit kidney.

A temperature greater than 60 degrees C was maintained for 60 s within a 5-mm radius of a microwave electrode implanted in a rabbit kidney using 2450 MHz at 100 W for 30 s. Histological examination revealed complete coagulation necrosis in that area. VX-2 cells were inoculated into the kidneys of 10 rabbits. One week later, five rabbits received ultrasound… CONTINUE READING
