of specimens

diseases of the liver and kydney
•Biopsy of focal lesions of the liver, spleen,
pancreas, kidney
•Indications and choice of the procedure
for biopsy of breast lesions .
•What do I want from biopsy of thyroid
nodules?
•PSA and biopsy of the prostate : new trends
LECTURE: - Contrast Enhanced Sonography
and Virtual Navigation :are opening new
spaces for Interventional US
INTERACTIVE CASES SIMULATIONS.
1.Risk for me and risk for the patients : is
biopsy worthwhile? Other Imaging before
biopsy ?
LECTURE : - Ethanol, RF, MW, Laser, Cryo :
an attempt to get oriented in the jungle of
ablation
•A tailored approach for treatment of the patient
with HCC
•Ablation of hepatic metastasis : time to make
stock of the situation
•Open and Laparoscopic Ablation : indications
and results
•Ablation of renal cancer : extended indications
and results
•Ethanol injection and thermal ablation of
thyroid and parathyroid nodules
LECTURE : - Trans-arterial Chemoembolization
(TACE) of HCC and metastasis.
New agents and applications.
INTERACTIVE CASES SIMULATIONS.
1.High risk patients for ablation
2.The liver Surgeon : Please, call me before

6. “Irreversible electroporation” : the future
prospective for ablation ?
Sponsored session : presentation of new
equipments and devices
2.Drainage of a cyst of the liver or kidney: when is
the case?
3.Severe complications of biliary drainage : why and
how to avoid them.
4.Ovarian “simple” cyst in young women: indication
for aspiration.
