Ablation and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) are both effective treatments for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), especially those in early stages of the disease. Siddharth A. Padia, MD explains what interventional radiologists need to know when deciding between ablation and… Read More
In this video, Matthew Callstrom, MD, PhD discusses the risk of collecting system injury with microwave ablation and how central renal tumors can be effectively treated.
Computed tomography (CT)-guided percutaneous microwave ablation is safe and well-tolerated in patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and achieves nephron preservation similar to existing ablative modalities, according to a study published in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology.… Read More
In this video Peter Littrup, MD discusses a case of renal cryoablation including hydrodissection, cryoprobe placement, and cryoablation monitoring.
Older age or a higher rate of comorbidities with age do not affect survival in metastatic colorectal cancer when patients receive radiofrequency ablation (RFA), high-dose-rate brachytherapy (HDR-BT), or Y90-radioembolization (Y90-RE), according to a study published in BMC Cancer. An institutional… Read More
In this video, Alice Gillams, MB, CHB, discusses the benefits of liver directed therapy.
Interventional radiologists who are interested in performing adrenal ablations would benefit from reviewing the literature and including both an endocrinologist and anesthesiologist on the treatment team, according to a presentation by Debra Gervais, MD, at the Symposium on Clinical Interventional… Read More
Patients with small renal masses (SRMs) who are poor candidates for nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) may benefit from radiofrequency ablation (RFA) performed percutaneously, according to a new study published in Videosurgery and Other Miniinvasive Techniques. A retrospective analysis of medical… Read More
Biopsy results of renal masses rarely obviated the need for subsequent ablation and can safely be performed alongside image-guided tumor ablation (IGTA), according to a study published in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology. A retrospective review of one institution's database… Read More
