Scintigraphic imaging using (99m)Tc-pertechnetate and (99m)Tc-MIBI provides quantifiable results and is promising as a diagnostic follow-up after microwave ablation. Strain elastography detects decreasing tissue elasticity, but accuracy is limited by the necessary reduction of color-coded output to elasticity scores.
