Mediterranean Interventional Oncology
PRACTICAL APPROACH TO LOCOREGIONAL TREATMENT IN ONCOLOGY
It is our pleasure to invite you to the next edition of MIO-Live (Mediterranean Interventional Oncology) Symposium. Based on the actual situation, because of new pandemic-ridden circumstances, we had the 6th edition of MIO-Live on 25-26 January 2021 as avirtual meeting.
The Scientific Program Committee worked hard to create an intensive program providing the same high-quality sessions and global platform for fruitful research exchange maintaining the usual interactive format.
It will be based on:
Live and Prerecorded Cases
Learning by knowledge-sharing
MULTIDISCIPLINARY INTERNATIONAL SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE
The variety of professionals in different disciplines ensures a vivid, fruitful and balanced scientific discussion.
LIVE CASES & EXPERT PANEL DISCUSSION SESSIONS
A Mixed-Specialty Expert Panel discusses and defines in advance all the treatment strategies used in the live case performances. Become a protagonist! Live it!
Prerecorded Live cases
Interactive live cases with experts explaining all the methods adopted, talking you through dedicated IO interventions. The procedures will be explained in detail through video by speakers available for live discussion.
In order to create a real interactive meeting despite major limitation of virtual events we introduced a ‘Grand Jury’, with the attempt to fill this gap. Four Opinion Leaders actively present on video compose the ‘Grand Jury’ during all sessions (presentations/live cases/discussions) with the role to stimulate discussion with comments, suggestions, questions, criticisms… as a Grand Jury!
DISCUSSIONS on CASES FROM PREVIOUS MIOLive editions:
Cases discussed and treated during the past edition will be discussed and materials and strategies will be interactively analyzed while assessing the results. Were the experts right? What have we learned? A critical evaluation of results/F-U of previously treated patients to improve our future decisions. We will also discuss on how indications changed in the last 5 years (evaluating again cases treated 5 years ago – in the first edition of MIOLive)
IO and other PILLARS
These four lectures will be focused on the combined role of IO and the other pillars in the cancer treatment, such as Surgery, Chemotherapy, Immunotherapy, and Radiotherapy. They have the purpose to highlight the multimodality approach that is mandatory in the selection of the right treatment for the right patient at the right time.
