Caption

Liver cancer treatment research. Consultant surgeon David M. Lloyd simulating microwave oblation of a patient's liver tumour. Lloyd developed this technique in the 2000s, and here is using a microwave generator and probe manufactured by UK company Acculis. Liver cancer is usually considered inoperable, but use of this probe, which is inserted under the skin or through a 'keyhole' incision, produces better results than other methods. Photographed in 2009, at the University Hospitals of Leicester, Leicester, UK.
