The MOTION Study: Cryoablation for Painful Bone Metastases
with Dr. Jack Jennings
In this episode of the BackTable Podcast, host Dr. Jacob Fleming and guest Dr. Jack Jennings discuss advancements in interventional oncology, specifically regarding cryoablation for bone metastases. Dr. Jennings is an interventional musculoskeletal radiologist at Washington University School of Medicine and President of the American Society of Spine Radiology.
They discuss the results of the MOTION Study, the benefits of industry collaboration, and the future of robotic guidance systems in interventional procedures. They also explain techniques like hydrodissection and pneumodissection in detail. With constant advancements in technology such as guidance navigation systems to reduce pain from bone metastases, it is crucial for interventional radiologists to adapt to these changes. At the end of the episode the doctors give a shout out to the upcoming Society of Interventional Oncology (SIO) 2024 meeting and the enriching opportunities that it offers for interventional radiologists.
