Ultrasound-guided thermal ablation therapy is a new minimally invasive technique. As the detection rate of thyroid disease increased year by year,thermal ablation have become the first choice for the treatment of thyroid nodules with its advantages of high safety,prominent effect and repeatable treatment. Thermal ablation mainly includes radiofrequency ablation,microwave ablation and laser ablation. This paper aims to make a comprehensive review of the application of ultrasound-guided thermal ablation therapy for thyroid nodules.
