Expert Video - What is a lung ablation?

A lung ablation is when a surgeon uses a special technique to apply an energy source to kill the tumor. Different types of energy sources can be used (cryotherapy, or microwave ablation, or radiofrequency ablation) and the amount of energy applied to the tumor is carefully calculated using different software programs. It’s still considered somewhat experimental however it can help certain patients to spare as much lung tissue as possible.
