Prostatic Artery Embolization - Think Education Physician Course

Prostatic Artery Embolization

This course is designed for Interventional Radiologists who have the clinical capacity to perform PAE, and who want to gain thorough knowledge about all aspects of the procedure, from patient work-up to post-PAE care. It is required to have cone beam CT imaging access to ensure the imaging equipment is suited for PAE. A minimum of one embolization procedure per week (no fewer than 52 embolizations annually) is strongly recommended. It is helpful for attending Interventional Radiologists to have a good working relationship with their facility’s Urology Department, in order to collaborate on patient selection and treatment.
