Hands-on Device Training
Percutaneous ablation plays an increasingly fundamental role for the loco-regional treatment of cancer. Ablation technologies and equipment for live image guidance are developing quickly.
This Hands-on Device Training (HDT) aims to provide an overview of available technologies. Separate sessions will look at radiofrequency ablation, microwave ablation and alternative techniques, including cryoablation and other image-guided technologies.
After a short kick-off presentation by the HDT coordinators, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the specifics, as well as the safe and effective use of the available technology in a hands-on setting.
Each HDT will feature a round-table discussion with the coordinators at the end of each session allowing participants to ask questions and give feedback.
