Real-time navigation is a useful tool for liver cancer procedures, according to new study

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

A University of Cincinnati Cancer Center study has found that real-time navigation is a useful tool for surgeons performing ablation procedures to destroy tumors in the liver.

The research, led by David A. Gerber, MD, is published in the journal JAMA Network Open.

Ablation, Gerber said, uses focused energy to kill in a similar way that focused energy in a microwave heats up food.
