Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Ablative therapies as an alternative to surgical resection are investigational for malignancies but a reasonable option in benign disease. The extensive experience gained with ablative therapies for other malignancies (i.e., hepatic and renal) is being used to guide some of the techniques in breast disease. A number of reviews on breast malignancy ablation studies have been published, describing these small (less than 60 patients), single institution series and are reviewed in this chapter
