CME: Thermal Ablation Therapies for Hepatic Tumors
CME/CE Credits Available:
9.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
Over the last several years, advances in technologies available for thermal ablative therapies for liver cancer have at times surpassed practitioners' expertise, creating a gap in knowledge and technical skills. Exposure to these technologic advances offered in training programs for physicians in training and didactic and skills courses for physicians in practice is variable, and anecdotal experience is often insufficient to prepare physicians to properly apply these techniques. This course will provide physicians with both didactic education and hands-on skills related to recent and novel technologies available in the care of the patient with solid liver tumors including microwave ablation, electroporation, and percunav localization. The focus of this course will include fundamentals, applications, and limitations of each technology, as demonstrated and executed on animate models.
