This month’s journal-based CME article is titled "Yttrium-90 Radioembolization in Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma: A Multicenter Retrospective Analysis".
This is a multi-center retrospective review of 115 patients diagnosed with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) who underwent radioembolization with 90Y microspheres. The authors’ purpose was to observe treatment outcomes as well as the frequency and severity of complications.
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of interventional radiologists, hepatobiliary surgeons, oncologists, nurses, techs, and trainees at all levels with special interest in the management of cholangiocarcinoma.
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 treatment outcomes in patient treated with Yttrium-90 in the setting of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma.
- Describe the frequency and severity of complications following therapy.
