Radiofrequency ablation

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a localized cancer treatment that uses high-energy radio waves to heat and destroy cancerous cells.

During RFA, a thin, needle-like probe is temporarily inserted into a tumor through a tiny incision in the skin, using CT scan or ultrasound guidance. The probe then releases electrodes that heat and destroy cancer cells. RFA may be used to treat tumors when surgery is not an option or to relieve other symptoms related to cancer treatment.
