Overview

SMC Image-guided Tumor Ablation Training Course (SITAT) for Liver Cancer is originated from SITAT which has provided the educational training courses for imaged-guided tumor ablation of various organs since 2012. 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. We will provide more interactive and intense training with focusing on live demonstration for the limited numbers of trainee. During three days of an intensive course, the attendee can achieve an informative lesson from educational cases. We kindly invite any physician and medical personnel who are interested in image-guided liver tumor ablation to SITAT for liver cancer.
