Breast Cryoablation, From the AJR "How We Do It" Special Series.

Breast cryoablation is a minimally invasive image-guided percutaneous procedure to treat fibroadenomas and early-stage breast cancer utilizing liquid nitrogen or argon gas to create extremely cold temperatures that devitalize targeted tissue. Although more long term data are needed, this outpatient procedure is well tolerated and carries minimal risks, including non-target thermal injury that can be mitigated by careful planning and proper technique. Building a sustainable breast cryoablation service in a radiology practice poses several practical considerations, such as training proceduralists, purchasing equipment, recruiting patients, and understanding the revenue cycle. This article describes aspects of the radiologist's role in this procedure, including implementation of a breast ablation program, patient selection, technical details related to intervention, and expected postprocedural outcomes.
