Answer

RFA is usually performed in specialist centers. Radiologists and other clinicians who do not normally deal with such cases must be aware of the different aspects of post-RFA appearances, especially in view of likely recurrence. Follow-up imaging may include the use of computed tomography (CT), US, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or positron emission tomography (PET).
