Microwave Therapy Systems, Tissue Ablation, Interstitial
Definition : Tissue-ablation microwave therapy systems designed to ablate regions of solid organs (e.g. liver). These systems consist of a microwave (2.45 GHz) generator, interstitial needle-like applicators as antennas, and a temperature sensor; computed tomography, ultrasound, or magnetic resonance guidance is used to locate the applicator and sometimes to evaluate tissue ablation. Interstitial tissue-ablation systems are mostly used for percutaneous coagulation necrosis of unresectable tumors at temperatures over 60 degrees C, but less than 100 degrees C.
