SIR 2023 Phoenix - Scientific Program Preview for Ablation Fanatics

Next month, CASCINATION is happy to attend the SIRs annual meeting in Phoenix to launch Quality Ablation with CAS-One IR. We of course will have a booth with a system for you to come by and see with your own eyes and hands. We are also fortunate enough to be part of the hands-on session.

Pending the strictness of the customs agents, we will have swiss cheese and chocolate. Also - if you are lucky, we can show you a sneak peek of the upcoming software that is driven by artificial intelligence.

If you are even close to as passionate about ablation as we are, we hope you appreciate our preview of the event that highlights the key ablation sessions in the scientific program.

If you are speaking about ablation at SIR and we missed your session in this preview, come by the booth for a face to face apology!
