Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to describe the indications for and approach to image-guided percutaneous ablation of renal tumors. CONCLUSION. Image-guided ablation techniques have become accepted treatment of patients with small renal tumors, a viable alternative to partial nephrectomy.
