Overview

SMC Image-guided Tumor Ablation Training Course (SITAT) for liver cancer is originated from SITAT which has provided educational training courses for image-guided tumor ablation of various organs. After the 10th program, we decided to focus on liver tumor ablation. SITAT for liver cancer will provide an opportunity to learn the essential technical tips for successful ablation of liver tumors through comprehensive lectures, case discussion, and live demonstration. Through three days intensive course, the attendee can achieve an informative lesson from the educational cases. We kindly invite any physician and medical personnel who are interested in image-guided liver tumor ablation to SITAT for liver cancer.
