This month’s journal-based CME article is titled "Insufficient Leiomyoma Infarction in Uterine Artery Embolization: Relationship with Tumor Location."
Despite technically successful UAE, insufficient tumor infarction has been reported in some tumors, leading to the recurrence of symptoms and additional interventions. This study provides data on expected mean reduction in the uterine colume one year after a technically successful UAE, identifies individual leiomyoma factors correlated with incomplete infarction and provides data on the location of leiomyomas that have the highest odds ratio (OR) for incomplete infarctions after a technically successful UAE.
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of interventional radiologists, gynecologists, internists, nurses, techs, and trainees at all levels with special interest in UAE.
To receive CME credit for this journal-based CME activity, participants must read the journal article and score 75% or better on the post test. Participants will have three opportunities to score 75% or better.
After participating in this journal-based CME activity, learners should be able to:
- Identify expected mean reduction in the uterine volume one year after a technically successful UAE.
- List individual leiomyoma factors correlated with incomplete infarction after a technically successful UAE.
- Indicate the location of leiomyomas that have the highest odds ratio (OR) for incomplete infarctions after a technically successful UAE.

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) - approved April 1, 2019. 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.
