Room 202

Cardiac radioablation has begun to increase in use across the world. This is largely due to the exciting early results from phase I/II trials. This rapid expansion however leads to the issue of how to safely expand this technology from a few centers to many. This session will provide a review of the key components needed to start a radioablation program. Lessons learned since the completion of the first trials have been instrumental in improving this process for the safe and effective treatment of patients. To increase access to this exciting new therapy an outreach program was developed. This session will describe how the outreach program has helped expand this therapy to numerous centers across the globe from both the point of view of the outreach group and from the prospective of a clinic starting a brand new cardiac radioablation program.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe the key components to start a cardiac radioablation program along with the lessons learned since the first phase I/II trials.

2. Describe how the outreach programs has helped centered start their own cardiac radioablation programs across the globe.

3. Describe from the perspective of a center starting their cardiac radioablation program the process of treating their first patient.
