Core Tip Radiofrequency ablation, microwave ablation, and laser thermal ablation, when performed by skilled operators, can successfully treat all liver tumors eligible for thermal ablation. However, each of them has pecu-liar advantages and limitations that can make one technique more suitable than the other ones to treat patients and tumors with different characteristics. When all the three techniques are available, the choice should be guided by their advantages and disadvantages, number, size and location of the liver nodules, and cost-saving considerations, in order to give patients the best treatment option.
