Abstract

Owing to its ability to place and use multiple cryoprobes simultaneously, cryoablation enables the treatment of tumors of any shape. Cryoablation causes ice crystals to form within cells, inducing membrane rupture and cell death via cellular dehydration and local tissue ischemia. Ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) enable clear visualization of the margins of low-density and solid ice. A case of breast cancer with axillary lymph-node metastasis treated with CT-guided cryoablation has been reported previously.
