Microwave Thermal Ablation (MTA) procedures for the treatment of solid tumours are spreading due to several advantages of the technique with respect to traditional approaches. The success of MTA treatments, combined with their low invasiveness and fast recovery times, allow developing the technique for different and new clinical indications.

Abstract

Microwave Thermal Ablation (MTA) procedures for the treatment of solid tumours are spreading due to several advantages of the technique with respect to traditional approaches. The success of MTA treatments, combined with their low invasiveness and fast recovery times, allow developing the technique for different and new clinical indications. This contribution describes two possible new scenarios where MTA procedures could be applied, describing the engineering challenges to be considered and solved.
