Image-guided tumor ablation (IGTA) was first used in cancer therapy to treat liver tumors.
More recently, Damian Dupuy, MD, an interventional radiologist at Rhode Island Hospital, has pioneered the successful use of IGTA in many other types of cancer including tumors of the lung, bone, kidney, adrenal gland and soft tissue.
IGTA is performed as an outpatient procedure at Rhode Island Hospital's diagnostic imaging department.
