ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study conducted by researchers at Tang Du Hospital in Xian, China, which revealed the role of ultrasound-guided radiofrequency ablation (RFA) in the treatment of hepatic primary cysts. It addresses the benefits of ultrasound-guided RFA according to Doctor Du Xi-Lin. The reaction of patients during the RFA procedure is described.
