GEST Education

The GEST Group has developed premiere events including the annual GEST conference, focused topic  meetings and summits where physicians come to learn from other physicians in the field of embolization.

Coil Catheter Compatibility at a Glance

During the coil summit, physicians expressed an interest in a quick guide to embolization coil-catheter compatibility. Thanks for Dr. Dania Daye, we are pleased to present the Coil/Catheter Compatibility at a Glance. Fill out the form to the right for immediate access to the guide.
