The 2023 Mediterranean Interventional Oncology (MIO) Live congress took place on 30 and 31 January 2023 in Rome, Italy. Organised by Prof. Roberto Iezzi, this congress puts IO in the spotlight with a focus on collaboration between interventional oncologists as they fight for recognition by their hospitals and inclusion in MDTs. MIO Live saw its eighth iteration this year, and representatives of Next Research (CIRSE’s in-house contract research organisation) and IASIOS (the International Accreditation System for Interventional Oncology Services) had the pleasure of being invited to attend the congress to be part of the session “MIO-Live meets CIRSE”.
MIO Live has always been characterised by a potent mixture of scientific expertise and live cases performed by Prof. Roberto Iezzi and other colleagues. This year’s hybrid design allowed for world-renowned experts in the field of interventional oncology (IO) to pre-record sessions or attend via video calls, giving the congress an international character beyond the Mediterranean. The online presence of the Korean Society for Interventional Radiology testified to this positive development.
The session “MIO Live meets CIRSE” presented two CIRSE-associated initiatives: Next Research and IASIOS.
