To whom it may concern:
It is our pleasure to inform you about International Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) Training Program in Juntendo University Hospital.
Currently, RFA treatment has become a standard treatment modality for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
In Japan, since its early introduction in 1999, it has received reimbursement in the year 2004 and become popular as it is performed in about 1,400 facilities. However, its treatment outcome and skills among those facilities are known to vary significantly. Furthermore, as it has become to be applied to metastatic liver cancer, for its uncertainty in boundary caused by the tumor characteristics, it is requiring more advanced skills. This program is organized to improve these circumstances and to disseminate skills and know-hows for RFA treatment. Until today, we have held five training sessions for Japanese doctors, and the number of participants amounts to 80 doctors.
