Figure 4

The comparison of the nodular symptomatic scores between the RFA and MWA groups. There were no significant differences in the symptomatic scores before the ablation and at the 3rd, 6th, and 12th month and the last follow-up. The mean ± standard deviation is illustrated. (RFA: radiofrequency ablation; MWA: microwave ablation; RF_Symptom: the mean symptomatic scores in the RFA group; MW_Symptom: the mean symptomatic scores in the MWA group; BA: before the ablation; mo: months; FU: follow-up).
