Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The purpose of this article is to review the spectrum of early and delayed normal cross-sectional imaging findings after percutaneous radiofrequency ablation of hepatic tumors.

CONCLUSION:

Knowledge of postablation imaging changes is vital not only for the interventionalist who performs the procedure but also for the diagnostician who interprets the postablation imaging. Recognition of normal postprocedural changes and differentiation from abnormal imaging findings prevent overcalling benign changes as abnormal and can thus avoid needless treatment.
