MRI-guided cryoablation is a minimally invasive treatment for renal cell carcinoma for eligible patients. Currently, intra-procedural monitoring of these procedures relies on a subjective assessment of tumor margins and proximity to critical structures by the interventionalist. Quantitative, computerized methods of monitoring and measuring ablation performance in real-time has the potential to improve the safety and success of these procedures. We developed an integrated, real-time intra-procedural monitoring software and determined its feasibility and functionality for cryoablation procedures.
