MR-guided laser therapy proves worth in liver

February 19, 2008

We have conducted a large-scale 14-year study that found laser ablation with MR guidance is very effective in the treatment of primary and metastatic liver tumors. We presented data from 1394 patients with 3725 lesions at the 2007 European Congress of Radiology. We have since ablated a total of 5041 lesions in 1954 patients. The two largest patient groups suffered from colorectal liver metastases and breast cancer liver metastases.

Head and neck imaging evolves as subspecialty

April 01, 2003

Head and neck radiology is evolving and developing as a subspecialty area alongside neighboring disciplines of neuroradiology, general radiology, and interventional radiology. Clinical disciplines that cooperate with head and neck radiology include otorhinolaryngology, facial and dental surgery, skull bone surgery, radio-oncology, and pediatrics. Patients from the internal medicine and surgery departments are also evaluated with diagnostic head and neck radiology methods.
