Theralight: Lightwave technologies for theranostics of tumors

Thermal Ablation (TA) is a class of interventional techniques that deploy electromagnetic energy sources to treat malignant diseases by inducing thermal damage and, eventually, coagulation necrosis in tissues. Among similar techniques, laser thermal ablation (LTA) stands out as particularly promising. The main limitations of LTA, however, are the restricted dimensions of the area ablated with …
