Using a case-based approach, a panel of expert faculty will review interventional oncology - catheter directed therapies and ablative therapies, and portal hypertension. Each section will highlight patient evaluation, diagnosis, procedural techniques, outcomes, and complications. Cases will range from basic to complex and include current relevant topics. This educational activity is an excellent opportunity to learn, review, and update one's IR knowledge and designed to meet the educational needs of interventional radiologists, IRs in-training; nurses at all levels; and radiologists at all levels.
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. To receive CME credit for this enduring activity, participants must watch the video and score 70% or better on the post-activity exam. Participants will have three opportunities to score 70% or better.
Upon completion of this enduring activity, participants should be able to:
- Assess indications and pre-procedure patient evaluations including imaging for IO (ablative and catheter directed therapies) and portal hypertension.
- Describe various techniques in IO and portal hypertension management
- Review post patient care (immediate and longitudinal) in IO and portal hypertension management
- Predict potential complications and their management in IO and portal hypertension management
