A 62-year-old woman with a history of multiple abdominal surgeries underwent computed tomography-guided percutaneous renal cryoablation for a 1.5-cm enhancing left renal mass. We describe the technique of salinoma formation to displace the colon away from the tumor to avoid colonic injury during cryoablation.
