About this title

Synopsis:

Radiofrequency Ablation of Cancer: Current Indications, Techniques and Outcomes discusses the principles and techniques of safe usage of radiofrequency current for the treatment of malignancies. Throughout the text, indications and outcomes data are stressed.

Edited and authored by pioneers in the field, the book features extensive discussion of RFA for hepatic tumors, including treatment of liver metastases from colorectal cancer, combined modality therapy for liver metastases, treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma with RFA, laparoscopic RFA, percutaneous RFA, and hepatic metastases from neuroendocrine tumors. In addition, chapters consider the emerging role of RFA in the management of primary breast cancer, primary bone tumors as well as metastatic bone tumors, renal tumors, and lung tumors. The principles and instrumentation as well as the imaging aspects of RFA are presented with comprehensive chapters on ultrasound, MRI, PET and CT by leaders in the field.

Complemented by 90 illustrations, this text is the gold standard reference on the use of RFA in treating a wide variety of malignant processes. It will serve as a valuable reference for all physicians engaged in the care of cancer patients.

Review:

From the reviews:

Departments doing RFA would do well to have this in their library.

This book, which is an introductory text to the topic, is a timely addition to the literature. It is a multi-author text with all 30 contributors being MDs.

Overall, this is a useful book, written for the clinical user...and it will serve as a useful starting point for those clinicians new to the field.

[RAD Magazine, February, 2006]

"There has been a recent rapid growth in use of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) ... . This book which is an introductory text to the topic, is therefore a timely addition to the literature. ... The clinical chapters are largely written in a clear style and have the feel of an instructional handbook. ... a useful book, written for the clinical user. ... it will serve as a useful starting point for those clinicians new to the field. ... provides a useful clinical overview." (Dr. G. ter Haar, RAD Magazine, February, 2006)
