On behalf of Asan Medical Center, we would like to cordially invite you to
participate in the Asan International Radiology Masters Course (AIRMC).
The main purpose of this intensive program is to share our clinical experience
in the field of Radiology including both imaging and intervention with doctors
from all over the world.
This is a year-round open program with flexible time schedule according to
attendee's request to facilitate effectiveness of the program.
Asan Medical Center Department of Radiology is one of the best leading centers
in Korea and its members are very active in both clinical practice and research
in various fields of radiology.
We would like to share our clinical experience with all of you.
We are honored to start our very first course with radiofrequency ablation and transarterial chemoembolization
of liver tumors and thyroid lesions. Live demonstration of radiofrequency ablation and transarterial
chemoembolization of liver tumors and thyroid lesions are emphasized in this program. You are also invited
to share your knowledge and experience with our faculty members through interactive discussion session.
We are going to expand the field and the range of topics to cover most of the current radiological issues.
Neurointerventional section will join the program sooner or later. Please check it out. We look forward to
welcoming you to Asan Medical Center department of radiology.
