Minimally invasive image-guided procedures are gaining an increasing role in the treatment of the patients with metastatic colorectal cancer. Interventional Oncology has established itself as a fourth pillar of oncological care, alongside with Medical, Surgical and Radiation Oncology. This research analysed the outcomes of patients treated with both common as well as novel Interventional Oncology techniques for metastatic CRC. Factors impacting local tumor control, complications and patients’ survival were the main focus of this doctorate research.
