Europe’s premier Interventional Oncology meeting, ECIO 2013, takes place in Budapest, Hungary, June 19-22, 2013.
In recent years, Interventional Oncology has emerged as a new discipline offering effective treatment of many malignant tumours with image-guided minimally invasive techniques. In numerous cases, Interventional Oncology achieves the destruction of tumours with fewer complications and more rapid recovery than traditional surgical methods. It also greatly contributes to the palliation of cancers, making it the fourth pillar of modern cancer care alongside radiation oncology, surgical oncology and medical oncology.
CIRSE supports the “Referring Physician” programme with € 100,000!The ECIO Incentive Programme allows radiologists with a full registration for ECIO 2013 in Budapest to invite their referring physician to the conference for free. The first 100 referring physicians registered by May 31, 2013 will receive complimentary registration and up to € 1,000 travel support.
This allows the guest colleagues to familiarise themselves with what Interventional Oncology can offer their patients, and how different treatment modalities can be best combined for maximum efficacy. It also gives colleagues the opportunity to strengthen their working relationships and discuss collaboration away from the busy hospital environment. So far, the programme has attracted clinicians from departments as diverse as surgery, medical oncology, hepatology, radiation oncology, nephrology and gastroenterology.
