Answer

RFA systems commercially available for clinical application in the United States include the following [42] :

  • Integra Radionics (Burlington, MA) manufactures a 200W generator with internally cooled electrodes; it is available as a cluster-array system or a single-needle system and includes optional automated pulsing of the current
  • RITA Medical Systems (Mountain View, CA) produces various models of umbrella-type electrodes [43] ; these systems do not allow for pulsing of the internal current and do not have internal cooling electrodes
  • RadioTherapeutics (Mountain View, CA) produces expandable, umbrella-type electrodes, including the LeVeen RFA system; this system does not allow for pulsing of the internal current and does not have internal cooling electrodes
