Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is an effective local ablative therapy. It has been first used in liver cancers and metastases and is widely used in lung, kidney, thyroid and bone tumors.

After it is placed in the tumor, radiofrequency energy is given to the tumor tissue through the needles opened in umbrella style. The resulting heat causes tissue death in an area of ​​approximately 3-5 cm around the needle.
