Interventional Techniques in the Thorax of Adults

  • Dierk Vorwerk


Interventional radiology in the thorax is somewhat ill-defined. Most people will reflect on nonvascular interventions such as lung biopsy. However, there is, in fact, a huge variety of different nonvascular and vascular interventions performed within thoracic structures, and more will be of growing importance, such radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of lung tumors.
