This clinical study evaluates the success rate of CT-guided bone biopsies in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (nCRPC). This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of interventional radiologists, urologists, oncologists, radiation-oncologists and nurses, techs, and trainees at all levels with special interest in prostate cancer.
The SIR Journal CME Program is a convenient way to fulfill your CME requirements while learning about the latest advances in medicine and research. Each month, one article in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (JVIR) will have a companion CME exam. To receive CME credit for this journal-based CME activity, participants must read the journal article and score 60% or better on the exam. Participants will have three opportunities to score 60% or better.
After purchasing access to this educational activity, you will be directed to the SIR Learning Center to participate in the activity and obtain your certificate.
Following completion of this CME activity, the participant will be able to:
- Describe the technical success rate of CT-guided bone biopsies based on histological confirmation.
- State the percentage of patients in whom RNA can be isolated for sequencing purposes.
- Recognize factors that impact the diagnostic yield of CT-guided bone biopsies.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essentials and Standards of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
The Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. SIR designates this education activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
This program is approved for 1 self-assessment CME credit (SA-CME) by the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR). SIR is awarded Deemed Status by the American Board of Radiology (ABR). The SA-CME credit offered for this enduring activity meets the ABR’s criteria for self-assessment toward the purpose of fulfilling requirements in the ABR Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program.
