Abstract

The objectives of our article are to review our experience with radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of pulmonary neoplasms with CT guidance. We described the application of RFA to pulmonary nodules, listed complications of RFA and strategies for the treatment of pulmonary nodules with RFA, and explained treatment goals regarding primary and secondary pulmonary tumors treated with RFA. RFA is a promising minimally invasive therapy for pulmonary tumor in patients who are not good operative candidates.
