Image-guided tumor ablation is a minimally invasive, image-guided therapy used to treat tumors from liver cancer, kidney cancer, lung cancer, and bone cancer. Image-guided ablation may also be used to reduce the size of a tumor so it can be more easily eliminated by conventional treatment such chemotherapy or radiation. Image-guided ablation may also provide relief when a tumor invades the chest wall and causes pain.
For mesothelioma patients, The protocol would use the magnetic fields in an MRI scanner to steer a 2 mm magnetic seed through the body directly to the interior of a tumor, where it could then be heated and destroy cancer cells. The technology has successfully been tested on laboratory animals with positive outcomes.
