A Pilot Study to Evaluate Magnet Resonance Thermal Imageguided Interstital Thermal Therapy for Focal Ablation of Breast Cancer
I. To evaluate the procedural success rate of using the Visualase magnetic resonance
(MR)-guided laser system to target, access, thermally monitor, and focally ablate MR-visible
breast cancer lesions.
2. To obtain preliminary data on ablative success using pathologic assessment for specimen
excised subsequent to the ablation.
Patients undergo MR-thermal image guided laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT) over 1
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 3-7 days.
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Frequency of not completing the procedure due to patient's discomfort
Up to 7 days
