Course objective
: The International School of Image-Guided Interventions was founded in order to convey disease-centered, interdisciplinary, therapeutical approaches with emphasis on minimally invasive strategies. Especially the therapy of patients suffering from hepatocellular carcinoma requires a well developed interdisciplinary teamwork. The course lasts two days and addresses surgeons and radiologists experienced in the therapy of HCC patients. In a first theoretical part, therapeutical options depending on different underlying diseases (viral hepatitis, NASH, progressive cirrhosis with portal hypertension) will be presented by renowned hepatologists. In a second hands-on part, chemo- and radioembolisation methods and different techniques of laparoscopic liver surgery will be performed using an animal model. The combined participation of surgeons and radiologists deepens the mutual understanding of subject specific methods and broadens their applicability. 

Major target group
: Surgeons and radiologists experienced in treating patients with HCC.

This course can be adapted to individual needs of e.g. hospitals and practitioners.
