Five years ago Vera Morrison of Madison Heights was diagnosed with lung cancer- the No. 1 cause of death among men and women in the United States. After radiation treatments failed, her future didn't look so bright.
But then she was given the option to try a new treatment called lung ablation by Beaumont interventional radiologist Michael Savin, M.D. She agreed to treatment with radiofrequency ablation, or RFA. Since her RFA in May 2006, her cancer has been in remission.
