RC 1213-2
15 min
AI and biomechanical modelling for advances in image-guided focal liver ablation
Kristy Brock, Houston, TX / United States
1. To understand the role of AI in enabling advanced image-guided focal ablation.
2. To demonstrate the improvement in targeting with biomechanical modelling for liver ablation.
3. To illustrate the correlation of the minimum ablation margin with recurrence rates and the importance of prospective, multi-centre clinical trials.

Clinical advances in stereotactic radiofrequency ablation of liver tumours
Reto Bale, Innsbruck / Austria
1. To learn about the rationale for the application of stereotaxy and image fusion for percutaneous ablation.
2. To learn about the essential parts of the workflow of stereotactic thermal ablation.
3. To learn about the short- and long-term outcomes after stereotactic thermal ablation of various primary and secondary liver tumours.
RC 1213-4
15 min
US-PET/CT fusion for image fusion for guidance of thermal ablation
Luigi A. Solbiati, Rozzano / Italy
1. To learn the rationale for the fusion of US and PET/CT for the guidance of thermal ablation.
2. To understand the rationale for using, in selected cases, PET/contrast-enhanced CT (CECT) instead of simply PET/CT for image fusion with US.
3. To learn about the technical problems of US-PET/(CE)CT image fusion and its advantages over US-CT or US-MRI image fusion for the guidance of thermal ablation.
