Cryoablation of Early Invasive Ductal Breast Cancer With MRI Confirmation Shows Promising Clinical Benefits, According to Study Presented at RSNA
Date:12/5/2008

ical lumpectomy. The early and delayed CEMRI findings were correlated with the surgical histopathology. In all 15 cases, the post-ablation MRI's showed no suspicious contrast enhancement remaining at the targeted tumor site and histopathology confirmed complete tumor kill within the intended ablation zone. In three cases histopathology confirmed residual DCIS and/or small satellite lesions outside the cryoablation zone.

At delayed CEMRI, previously unreported characteristic and reproducible findings of signal void on post-contrast subtraction images ("black hole") correlates with an area of coagulation necrosis at the cryoablation site and a surrounding uniform thin rim enhancement ("cryohalo") corresponds to a zone of inflammation at the cryoablation margin.

"Lack of residual suspicious enhancement on post-cryoablation CEMRI appears to correlate with complete tumor kill within the targeted ablation zone. We believe the novel MR findings termed "black hole" and "cryohalo" serve as markers for successful ablation, giving us a noninvasive and reproducible method to verify clinical results," added Dr. Levine.

The study conducted by Dr. Levine and Steven Poplack, MD, Co-Director of Breast Imaging at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center is similar to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) funded clinical trial recently initiated by the American College of Surgeons Oncology Group (ACOSOG). Titled, "A Phase II Trial Exploring the Success of Cryoablation Therapy in the Treatment of Invasive Breast Carcinoma," the ACOSOG study will also evaluate cryoablation as well as the ability of MRI to evaluate post-cryoablation efficacy. The Visica 2 System was selected as the exclusive cryoablation technology to be utilized in the ACOSOG study.

Cryoablation is a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure that uses extreme cold to destroy tumors. The Sanarus Visica System has predominately been used in the cry
