International RFA training program started at 11:30 on February 25th (Thu). It will be 3 days long, from February 25th (Thu) to February 27th (Sat).

Four doctors from Indonesia, one from Taiwan, one from China, one from the Philippines, and one from Brazil participated in the training program. (Returned to Japan for reasons) (See below). Also, ablation specialists gathered from each country, so three developers from the United States and two from China visited.

On the first day, after Opening remarks and Course introduction by Professor Shiina, lectures such as “Indications and complications of RFA” by Prof. Yugo Kondo at the University of Tokyo and “Artificial ascites, artificial pleural effusion and other techniques in RFA” by Prof. Koji Uchino at JR Tokyo General Hospital On the next day, we planned the patients scheduled for RFA.

Participants were surprised and interested in the latest facilities in the Juntendo University RFA room. In particular, the RFA bed seems to have made a strong impression. There were a lot of questions this time, and the schedule was quite tight from the first day.

In the evening, a welcome party was held from 18:00 to 21:00.
