Cryoablation

Cryoablation is a process that uses hollow needles to apply extreme cold to diseased tissue in order to freeze it, thereby eliminating it or halting its progress. Using advanced image guidance, your MIT radiologist will place the cryoprobe into or near the diseased tissue. The extreme cold delivered to the diseased cells will freeze them in their tracks and stop blood flow to the area, so the diseased cells die. Cryoablation is particularly effective in treating tumors in the lungs, breasts, prostate, liver, and kidneys, as well as specific types of masses throughout the body.
