This one-and-a-half-day course - designed with lectures, panel
discussions, and case based discussions - will offer the most in-depth,
comprehensive and challenging curriculum available for interventional
radiologists, covering all aspects of radioembolization. Topics to be
discussed include challenging anatomy, therapy for specific primary and
secondary hepatic malignancies- including radioembolization in
combination with other therapies, retreatment, postprocedural care and
f/u, and management of complications.
Upon completion of this course, the attendee should be able to:
1. Describe advanced radioembolization techniques
2. Identify therapies used in combination with radioembolization for hepatic malignancy
3. Explain advanced dosimetry and treatment concepts
4. Summarize a state-of-the-art literature review of Y-90 radioembolization literature
This course will provide advanced and focused education for past Y-90:
Are yoU ready? attendees and other experienced practitioners who seek
to refine their knowledge and skills in radioembolization. It will be
most beneficial to previous AU Y-90 course attendees or physicians who
are well-versed and comfortable with Y-90 procedures and participate in
an active radioembolization program. The course will be advanced in
nature and include high level discussion and active audience
participation with experts, panelists and faculty. Come ready to
participate with cases and to challenge the experts.
The Society of Interventional Radiology is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide medical education for physicians.

Y-90 Meeting Hub
This online resource is exclusively for course participants. The Y-90 Meeting Hub will provide you with the syllabus, course agenda, presentation handouts, reference materials and other resources, as well as give you the opportunity to engage with other attendees, faculty and industry partners. Internet access will be provided in the meeting room to access the Web site, so we encourage you to bring your laptop or tablet device. Remember to bring the power cord for your device. The Y-90 Meeting Hub will be available to attendees for one year after the meeting.
Challenge the Experts
This course will provide attendees with a unique opportunity to interact with experts in Y-90. Lead by expert facilitators, course content will include challenging anatomy, in-depth discussions on the most commonly encountered disease conditions (HCC, CRC, NET, breast, cholangio, melanoma). Other advanced topics will include radioembolization in combination with other therapies–retreatment, postprocedural care and follow up, and management of complications.
Since attendee participation is an integral component of this course, all attendees should prepare their own cases to challenge the experts! Show your own case that is actively in the stages of Y-90 workup! Each section will include dedicated attendee case presentation time in order to maximize the learning experience. Use this template to prepare your cases to bring to the meeting and view a sample case here.
