Minimally Invasive Procedure for Oncology
Date:11/29/2009

ny microspheres with a diameter of only 20 to 40 micrometers (thousandths of a millimeter) containing a radiation-emitting isotope, are injected in the blood vessels supplying the tumor with the help of a catheter. Embolization and radiation cause the cancer cells to die off.

Ablative therapies - Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is currently the most commonly used thermoablative procedure. Using an electric generator, a high-frequency alternating current is generated outside of the body. This current is guided through the skin and directly to the center of the tumor via a cable and a long needle (probe) by means of optical control. There the tissue is heated up within a radius of several centimeters around the tip of the probe. Inside the tumor, temperatures of 122 to 194 degrees Fahrenheit are reached and the malignant tissue is positively "boiled away," thus, permanently destroying the tumor.
