Aims and objectives

During last 15 yrs therapeutic approach to primary & metastatic disease has changed and improved.Besides surgical hepatic resection newer less invasive non surgical options are:
a)Chemical Ablation-Percutaneous Ethanol Injection (PEI)
b)Thermal Ablation-Radofrequency ablation (RFA) or Microwave ablation

RFA has particularly gained importance over a period of time even though there are definite known pros and cons of the procedure.Using appropriate selection and exclusion criterias the overall efficacy can be increased as shown in tables 1 ;2 &3.


The purpose of this prospective study conducted in small Oncology hospital is to highlight using either contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS), either with or without fusion imaging (using prior CT or MRI DICOM data) to treat liver lesions well seen on PET/CT or MRI but difficult to judge on routine ultrasound during Radiofrequency ablation of primary or metastatic liver SOL’s.
