Interventional oncology and minimally invasive cancer treatments

Over the last two decades, the field of interventional oncology has quietly emerged as a fourth pillar of cancer care. This talk will give a brief history of the field, an overview of the current state of the art, and a look forward to the next wave of innovations.

Microwave Ablation

Microwave ablation is a technique to target and destroy tumors through a small needle. The UW-Madison has played a leading role in making ablation a mainstay of cancer care. This talk will outline current technologies and provide a case study of how academic research can move into the business sector to create jobs and improve healthcare for our citizens.
