Ablative therapies have been increasingly utilized in the treatment of soft tissue tumors. Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is an energy delivery system, effective in ablating tumors by inducing irreversible membrane destruction of cells.
Over the last few years the technology has been adopted by different medical disciplines via percutaneous or surgical approach with promising clinical outcomes.
In this live webinar you will learn interventional strategies to deal with these patients.
