2017 Y-90: The Complete Course

Sunday, January 22 - Tuesday, January 24, 2017

This two and a half-day course, designed with lectures, panel discussions, case vignettes and hands-on workshops, will offer the most in-depth, comprehensive and challenging curriculum available for clinical teams interested in initiating, developing, or strengthening their practice in this exciting aspect of interventional oncology. Y-90: The Complete Course has been formatted to include case presentations through the course, combining the lectures and elements included in previous Authorized User (AU) and Advanced Y-90 courses. Case scenarios and vignettes will highlight more complex topics, such as challenging anatomy, therapy for specific primary and secondary hepatic malignancies—including radioembolization in combination with other therapies, retreatment, post procedural care and follow up, and management of complications.
