Professor Solbiati worked from 1980 to 2015 at the General Hospital of Busto Arsizio (Varese), rising from Assistant Radiologist to Chairman of the Department of Oncology and Head of the Division of Interventional Oncologic Radiology. He pioneered ultrasound-guided aspiration biopsies (1979), ethanol injection (1983), radiofrequency ablation with cool-tip electrodes (1995) and microwaves (2009) of solid tumors and fusion imaging for the guidance of interventional procedures (2003). In parallel, he has been serving as an adjunct Professor of “Techniques and Methods of Diagnostic Imaging” from 1988 to 2014 at the School of Radiology of the University of Milan.
