The safety and effectiveness of percutaneous image‐guided ablations can be improved if the procedure could be assessed quantitatively and in real time. Using MRI’s ability to depict both the tumor and the iceball during cryoablations, we developed a novel computerized tool that utilizes fast automatic segmentation methods to compute ablation metrics and tested its accuracy in MRI guided cryoablations of renal cancer.
