The researchers' specific aims are to test the following hypotheses:
Hypothesis 1: A tumor can be completely ablated by ILT with MRI-guidance.
Hypothesis 2: The MRI-based 3D temperature map of tissue during ILT is predictive of destruction.
Hypothesis 3: The 3D "thermal dose" map that is based on the tissue's temperature over time is more predictive of tissue destruction than the temperature map.
