CME certificates will be sent by email within two weeks following the conclusion of the symposium.



Upon completion of this activity, the learner should be able to:


  • Discuss the latest therapeutic options using embolization for interventional oncology, lymphatic interventions, musculoskeletal (MSK) applications, trauma, bariatric, hemorrhoid-related bleeding, pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS), varicocele, visceral aneurysms, endoleak, portal interventions, renal interventions, vascular malformations, trauma, critical care, women’s health, and men’s health
  • Assess standard and advanced imaging techniques for the various embolotherapy applications
  • Compare embolic and embolization options and understand the differences in function, characteristics and potential outcomes
  • Determine embolotherapy treatment vs other treatment options based on latest evidence, established patient care standards and multidisciplinary approaches
  • Explain anatomy, indications, contraindications, patient planning, and potential complications for embolization and interventional procedures
  • Formulate multidisciplinary treatment options for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and role of prostate artery embolization (PAE) with latest techniques.
  • Outline the details of artificial intelligence (AI) and/ or augmented reality (AR) with relation to assisting in embolization and interventional procedures.
  • Describe the role of immuno-oncology in relation to interventional oncology and other oncology specialties



GEST 2020 will be of value to interventional radiologists, oncologists, diagnostic radiologists, nurses, radiology technologists, physician assistants, and other healthcare professionals interested in the field of embolization.
