Quality Ablation with Dr. Nadeem Shaida

Watch the video and learn how Quality Ablation with CAS-One IR contributes to treating more patients with challenging cases and helps achieve consistently low complications, and recurrence rates.

Dr. Nadeem Shaida has been using CAS-One IR for several years and explains the impact it has on his patients and his hospital.

Benefits of Quality Ablation with CAS-One IR

Tumor locations

Reduce Complications and Local Tumor Progression

  • Reduce LTP from 14-30% to 8-9%1-2
  • Achieve fewer complications and with lower severity with same OS3
  • Reduce bleeding and tumor seeding with low needle repositioning (1%)4
  • Evaluate treatment success immediately with AblaSure
  • Consistent results with multiple operators1

Treat More Complex Cases

  • Plan and navigate treatment in 2D and 3D with AI-driven visualizations
  • Visualize ablation volumes with over 75 needles across all modalities
  • Treat all segments of the liver regardless of proximity to critical structures with consistent success4,5
  • Facilitate long, double angulated trajectories6
  • Treat multiple or large (>3cm) tumors with overlapping ablation zones3,4,7,8
  • Treat lesions invisible of US/CT with MRI fusion9

Maximize Hospital Resources

  • Reduce intervention time by 57% and variability by 67%10, freeing CT room time
  • Reduce radiation by 30-50%5,10
  • Total cost reduced by 1/3rd compared to surgery11

  • Achieve low repositioning rates (1%) 6

Treating More Patients with Challenging Cases

5regions1 copy@2x-8
5regions2 copy@2x-8
  • Increase ease of complex cases with high angulation, long distance to target4
  • Limit needle repositioning need with low repositioning rate (1%) 6
  • Maintain confidence near structures of risk with ablation planning and navigated needle placement
  • Possibility to treat multiple and/or large tumours
    (>3 cm) with overlapping ablation zones3,4,7,8 

Consistently Lower Recurrence Rates and Complications

  • Significantly reduce recurrence rates1-2 (9% vs 14-30%) with safe and reliable ablations
  • Low and reduced overall complication rates (6%) 3,4
  • Add consistency to treatment success with ablation validation13
Low Recurrence Rates1
An important indicator of efficacy in the treatment of tumours in the liver is the local recurrence rate. A study covering 1,000 lesions shows that computer-assisted ablation of tumours based on CT-imaging and Quality Ablation with CAS-One IR is a reliable and highly effective treatment. It can improve patient outcomes by lowering the local recurrence rate compared to other imaging modalities1.

Quality Ablation reduces Treatment Time

Standardising procedure planning accelerates treatment by reducing needle placement time and need to repositioning.

Reduction of Radiation Dose

Standardised Quality Ablation workflow leads to lower exposure to radiation dose5

The more scans you do, the higher the radiation dose both for patients and physicians. With lesions easily accessible, this is not a problem. But the more advanced treatments you're doing with double angulated trajectories or multiple needles the complexity increases. The same is true for the radiation dose, because complex treatments usually require more scans. The workflow of Quality Ablation standardises treatment time also in complex cases. The result is a significant reduction in radiation dose.

Quality Ablation Success Stories

Learn how the start of a Quality Ablation program helps to expand treatment options for tumour patients.


Prof. Dr. Martin Maurer


CAS-One IR has helped us to be more precise in our work. And with ablations, great precision leads to better results.

Dr. Carlo Mario Stefano Tappero


The increased safety during the intervention is an important benefit for the patients.

Read the interview

Dr. Marie Beermann & Prof. Dr. Jacob Freedman


The cost of an ablation is a fourth of the cost of a resection. With five patients converted from surgery to ablation, the system has paid for itself.
