Abstract

Objective: The objective of this article is to describe evidence-based guidelines for percutaneous minimally invasive imaging-guided thermal ablation of bone metastases. Conclusion: Safe and effective minimally invasive thermal ablation can be performed to achieve pain palliation, local tumor control, or cure in selected subgroups of patients with osseous metastases. Thermal protection strategies should be implemented to minimize the risk of undesired thermal injury.
