There is also good reason to hope that these same lines of inquiry will yield better tests for screening, early detection, and prev- tion of progression beyond curability. While these developments provide a legitimate basis for much op- mism, many patients will continue to develop cancers and suffer from their debilitating effects, even as research moves ahead. For these in- viduals, it is imperative that the cancer ?eld make the best possible use of the tools available to provide present day cancer patients with the best chances for cure, effective palliation, or, at the very least, relief from symptoms caused by acute intercurrent complications of cancer. A modality that has emerged as a very useful approach to at least some of these goals is tumor ablation by the use of physical or physiochemical approaches.The guidance codes that also are submitted include a CT guidance code (CPT 76360), MRI guidance (CPT 76393), ... a lung lesion is ASA code 00520; and for anesthesia for tumor ablation for spinal cord lesions 99; the cervical ASA code is anbsp;...
