This month’s journal-based CME article is titled "Predictors of progression-free survival and local tumor control after percutaneous thermal ablation of oligometastatic breast cancer: Retrospective study".
This is a single center retrospective study that evaluated the effects of thermal ablation on oligometastatic (= 5) breast cancer lesions in 33 women and 35 metastases. The authors then defined prognostic factors for progression free survival (PFS) and local tumor progression.
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:
1. Discuss the expected progression free survival following thermal ablation for this population.
2. Describe observed adverse events after thermal ablation.

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 July 1, 2020. 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.
