Back to IR Basics: General Interventional Oncology - Part 2
This course is designed to improve operator competence in performing portal vein embolizations and select patients who will be the best candidates for these procedures and to see complications that can be encountered during a case and quickly identify steps, tools, and techniques to correct these complications.
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of interventional radiologist, interventional oncologist, nurses, techs and other physicians at all levels with special interest in interventional oncology.
The presentations in the on-demand activity were originally presented at the SIR 2017 Fellows Spring Practicum and includes the following:
Fellows Submitted Complications
Portal vein embolization
Common IO complications: Avoidance and management
Meet the experts: IO in private practice vs. academia
After purchasing access to this educational activity, you will be directed to the SIR Learning Center to participate in the activity and obtain your certificate. To receive CME credit for this enduring activity, participants must watch the video and score 70% or better on the post-activity exam. Participants will have three opportunities to score 70% or better.
Upon completion of this on-demand activity, participants should be able to:
Describe clinical indications for performing portal vein embolizations, common and uncommon complications encountered during IO procedures and techniques to reduce risk of complications.
Recognize clinical situations which raises risks for complications and identify strategies to mitigate impact on the patient.
