Breaking News: Groundbreaking Thyroid RFA Symposium Kicks Off in Romania

Renowned Interventional Endocrinologist, Dr. Roberto Valcavi, Headlines Groundbreaking Thyroid RFA Symposium in Romania

The First Thyroid Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) Symposium in Romania has kicked off in the city of Iasi on March 30th, 2023, and will run through April 2nd. The event is part of the Simpozion SNRIR, a prestigious medical event that focuses on interventional radiology and minimally invasive treatments.

Thyroid RFA has become an increasingly popular and effective treatment for benign thyroid nodules and recurrent thyroid cancers, offering a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery. This technique uses radiofrequency energy to generate heat and destroy targeted tissue, resulting in a significant reduction in the size of the treated nodules.

The symposium features an impressive lineup of international experts in the field of thyroid RFA, including renowned Interventional Endocrinologist, Dr. Roberto Valcavi from Reggio Emilia, Italy. Dr. Valcavi will deliver a lecture on Thyroid Ablative Therapies with a focus on RFA.


Other experts scheduled to present at the symposium include Dr. Giovanni Turtulici, an Interventional Radiologist from Genoa, Italy, Dr. Mattia Squarcia, an Interventional Radiologist from Barcelona, Spain, and Dr. Mihai Creteanu, an Interventional Radiologist from Iasi, Romania. The symposium also features a clinical case panel discussion and hands-on practice and workshops on Thyroid RFA.
