Johnson, M.D., FSIR, professor of radiology and surgery and director of interventional oncology at Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, Ind. "These sessions include invaluable hands-on training in Y-90 administration systems, advanced microcatheterization and embolization skills pertinent to device delivery and appropriate follow-up and patient prognosis after radioembolization," said Johnson.
