Basics of RF ablation in medical

This page describes basics of RF ablation system in medical.Radio Frequency(RF) ablation technology and treatment method is also explained.

RF ablation composed of two terms RF and ablation. RF refers to Radio Frequency and ablation means "surgical removal of a tissue or any body part". This is achieved by subjecting the desired body area or tumor by heating it with RF current.

RF ablation

Figure derived from Society of Interventional Radiology shows the RF ablation process. RFA probe carrying the RF current is being applied to cancerous tumor which generates radio-frequency heat and hence serves the purpose. The ablation technique is effective for both osteolytic & osteoblastic treatments.

Following are the merits of RF ablation system:
• It does not need to ionize radiation.
• It offers fast relief in single process of treatment.
• It requires single needle application.
• It does not have any side effects.
• The entire procedure takes just 30-40 minutes.

RF ablation technology

The Co-axial Bipolar technology is used which limits the radio frequency heating within the desired treatment part. This will prevent damage to undesired treatment areas. The sterile water is circulated within the RF probe so that RF energy as well as temperature can be maintained as desired.
