VAB and MRI Following Percutaneous Ultra-Sound Guided Cryoablation for Primary Early-Stage Breast Cancer: A Pilot Study in Japan

This study’s purpose was to evaluate the safety, feasibility, and cosmetic outcomes of cryoablation of breast IDC lesions and evaluate post-cryoablation MRI as a follow up tool for detection of residual malignancies and local recurrences. Study authors concluded that cryoablation of early-stage low-risk breast cancer tumors small than 15cm can be a potential substitute for lumpectomy.
