Focal Tumour Ablation Therapy
Focal ablation is a minimally invasive treatment option for patients with certain cancers, including cancers of the lung, liver and kidney.
There are several focal ablation procedures which directly apply thermal (extreme heat or cold) or chemical therapies to specific tumours and surrounding areas, including:
- thermal ablation, which includes radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and microwave ablation
- transcatheter arterial chemoembolization, also known as TACE
