Our group previously developed a technique for enhancing serialized CT scans during ablation (link). In a new publication, we demonstrate how this technique can enhance conventional and dual-energy CT. We also show that dual-energy CT …
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 …
Microwave ablation in patients with pacemakers
A new study from John Swietlik and our clinical group looked at microwave ablation in 13 patients with pacemakers. The distance between the microwave antenna and nearest pacemaker lead was 9-30 cm. There were no …
