Radiofrequency Ablation of Colorectal Metastasis to Lung

Learn about radiofrequency ablation therapy for colorectal metastasis to lung. Dr Derek Glenn, Interventional Radiologist at St George Hospital in Sydney, demonstrates how to treat a lung lesion using the RITA RF ablation probe under CT fluoro guidance.

A radiofrequency (RF) electrode is placed in the lung metastasis percutaneously. RF energy is applied to the tumor to induce coagulation necrosis.
