Dear colleagues,

It is our pleasure to inform you about the 3rd International Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) Training Program at Juntendo University Hospital.

RFA treatment has become a standard treatment modality for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, its treatment outcomes and skills are different significantly among facilities.

This program is organized to improve these circumstances and to disseminate skills and know-hows for RFA treatment. Until today, we have held domestic training programs seven times, and a total of 112 doctors participated in.
