Figure 1

The comparison of the ablated nodular MDRRs between the RFA and MWA groups at each follow-up period. At 3-month follow-up, the mean MDRR between the two groups showed no significant differences (p = 0.765), but after that, statistical significance was observed, and a higher MDRR was found in the RFA group relative to the MWA group. The mean ± standard deviation is illustrated. (MDRR: maximal diameter reduction ratio; RFA: radiofrequency ablation; MWA: microwave ablation; RF_MDRR: the mean nodular MDRR in the RFA group; MW_MDRR: the mean nodular MDRR in the MWA group; mo: months; FU: follow-up).
