RFA typically treat cancers than cannot be removed by surgeons because of their size/location or because the patient is not healthy enough to have open surgery.
RFA is primarily used to treat cancer in the liver, but it is being studied for use in the kidney, adrenal glands, lung, bone and prostate.
Interventional radiology is playing a role in developing new techniques that may improve cancertreatment in the future, including the use of magnetic particles to draw cancer-killing agents into tumors; and the delivery of genetic material, called gene therapy, to fight or prevent cancers.
