Wide-bore 1.5 Tesla MR imagers for guidance and monitoring of radiofrequency ablation of renal cell carcinoma: initial experience on feasibility

This study was conducted to test and demonstrate the feasibility of magnetic resonance (MR)-guided radiofrequency (RF) ablation of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) using a 1.5 T whole-body scanner equipped with a wide-bore superconductive magnet. Two patients with contrast-enhancing renal masses were treated with multipolar RF ablation (Celon ProSurge… CONTINUE READING
