Purpose: We aimed to determine the ablation characteristics of discontinuous moving shot technique (DMST) in microwave ablation (MWA), radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and laser ablation (LA), and analyze the differences compared with fixed electrode technique (FET) in an ex vivo porcine liver model.
Methods: FET was defined as the ablation needle remaining fixed during ablation. In DMST, ablation needle moved backward for a fixed distance twice along the long axis during ablation. Read More
