This month’s journal-based CME article is titled "Comparison of Drug-Eluting Embolics versus Conventional Transarterial Chemoembolization: A Cost-Effectiveness Analysis".
In this article, the authors conduct a cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA) comparing health and financial implications in patients treated for intermediate stage nonresectable hepatocellular carcinoma, treated with drug-eluting embolic (DEE) vs conventional (c) transarterial chemoembolization (TACE).
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:
- Determine the cost effectiveness of two types of TACE
- Describe variable that impact cost effectiveness

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 December 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.
