This month’s journal-based CME article is titled "Chemoembolization combined with radiofrequency ablation for a medium-sized hepatocellular carcinoma: A propensity score analysis"
In this study, the authors evaluate safety and effectiveness outcomes of patients undergoing chemoembolization vs combination of chemoembolization and ablation for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma providing the reader with greater insight into the outcomes of propensity matched patients undergoing locoregional therapy.
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of interventional radiologists, hepatologists, hepatobiliary oncologists, nurses, techs, and trainees at all levels with special interest in the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma.
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:
Understand the target lesion size for patients in this study
Describe the overall survival of this patient population
Compare the outcomes of recurrence-free survival between treatment types
