Rad-rad-path correlation with CT and US

Our latest publication highlights the correspondence of CT, ultrasound and gross pathology findings after RF and microwave ablation. Microwave ablations produce more water vapor, which is a useful imaging marker for the zone of complete necrosis. The gas zone underestimates the final ablation dimensions by a couple millimeters. A similar gas zone was not as useful during RF ablation because of how the microbubbles diffuse. The study demonstrates that intraprocedural imaging with CT or US can help monitor ablation progress.
