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, due to new pandemic-ridden circumstances, we decided to have the 6th edition of MIO-Live on 25-26 January 2021 as a virtual meeting.
The Scientific Programme Committee hardly worked to create an intensive programme 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
to ensure a vivid, fruitful and balanced scientific discussion
LIVE CASES & EXPERT PANEL DISCUSSION SESSIONS
treatment strategies of all live cases performed will be planned as previously discussed and defined by Mixed-Specialty Expert Panel. Be protagonist! Live it!
Prerecorded Live cases
Interactive live cases with experts explaining how and why they do it, talking you through dedicated IO interventions. Procedures will be detailed explained in the video with speakers available for live discussion.
as the main limitation of virtual events is related to the complexity in creating a real interactive meeting, we introduced a 'Grand Jury', with the attempt to fill this gap. 'Grand Jury' is composed by four Opinion Leaders actively present on video 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.
