High-intensity focused ultrasound ablation of liver tumours: can radiological assessment predict the histological response?
Cancer therapies usually depend on cross-sectional imaging for the assessment of treatment response. This study was designed to evaluate the ability of MRI to predict zones of necrosis following the use of high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to treat liver metastases. Patients with liver metastases, who had been scheduled for elective surgical resection of their tumours, were recruited to this non-randomized Phase II study. In each case, a proportion of an index liver tumour target was a...Expand abstract
