Catheter-based ablation procedures are mainly segmented by three types of technologies: radio-frequency ablation
, balloon ablation, and cryoablation.
During the last decades, however, CT-guided mini-incision surgery and CT-guided radio-frequency ablation
seem to become more popular [8-10].
During the management of nonarrhythmic conditions like radio-frequency ablation
of hepatic tumors, increased level of radio-frequency energy is frequently used, causing higher incidence of potential complications including skin burns at the site of the indifferent electrode patch .
