Cancer Treatments

Interventional Radiology at Mass General offers minimally invasive, image-guided treatments for adrenal cancer, bone cancer, kidney cancer, lung cancer and soft tissue cancers.
Cryoablation

Our interventional radiology team offers cryoablation as a minimally invasive treatment for adrenal cancer, kidney cancer and lung cancer. Cryoablation delivers thermal energy directly to the cancer tumor using image guidance to kill tumor cells by freezing them.

Irreversible Electroporation (IRE)

We offer irreversible electroporation, IRE for short, as a minimally invasive, image-guided treatment for cancer.

Microwave Ablation

We offer microwave ablation as a minimally invasive, image-guided treatment for adrenal cancer, liver cancer and lung cancer. Microwave ablation delivers thermal energy directly to the tumor using image guidance to kill tumor cells by heating them.

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

We offer radiofrequency ablation, or RFA, as an image-guided therapy to help treat bone cancer, kidney cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer or soft tissue cancers. RFA delivers thermal energy directly to the tumor using image guidance to kill tumor cells by heating them to very high temperatures.

Selective Internal Radiation Therapy (SIRT)

Our team of interventional radiology specialists offers selective internal radiation therapy to help treat liver cancer by targeting malignant lesions on the liver. This minimally invasive procedure typically takes two hours. We ask patients stay overnight for observation after undergoing selective internal radiation therapy, or SIRT.

Transarterial Chemoembolization (TACE)

We offer transarterial chemoembolization, TACE for short, as a minimally invasive, image-guided treatment for liver cancer tumors. It optimizes the ability to shrink or eradicate tumors by targeting them precisely and blocking their blood flow.
