Back to IR Basics: Interventional Oncology - Local Tumor Ablation
This course is designed to provide principles, device selection and tips for success in tumor ablation and provides lung and renal ablation techniques, challenges and recommendations.
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of interventional radiologist, interventional oncologist, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other physicians at all levels with special interest in tumor ablation.
The presentations in the on-demand activity were originally presented at the SIR 2017 Fellows Spring Practicum and includes the following:
Basic Principles of Local Tumor Ablation Device Selection & Tips for Success
Liver Cancer Ablation: How I Do It
Lung Cancer Ablation: How I Do It
Renal Cancer Ablation: How I Do It
Panel: Ablation complications
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.
