    I have been reading about

    I have been reading about this for a while. It is also called Nanoknife. Looks very promising. It is a good tool should I ever need it.

    I had thought this was "new" but you're right-nanoknife

    uses this type of technology.....Baptist Health in Arkansas specifically mentions  IRE on thieir website,from 2009 (brought tomy attention by quick delving into subject)- Point is,there is always something going on research-wise,even if its " just " fine-tuning current procedures,drugs (ie-shorter adj FOLFOX than current practice)or techniques.....tho a dramatic game-changer is surely needed

    I had this done in Feb 2013 at MSKCC

    The head of interventional Radiology at MSKCC (dr Solomon) performed this on one of my tumors prior to my liver resection.  He said that there had only been @ 1,000 of these procedures done worldwide and that MSKCC had done @ 100 of them.  It was great from a patient's perspective!
