Amsterdam Multidisciplinary Interventional Oncology Symposium
25-26 October 2018, EYE Filmmuseum
Amsterdam, the Netherlands

The Amsterdam Multidisciplinary Interventional Oncology Symposium (AMIOS 2018) is a multidisciplinary conference which offers participants a complete review of the latest developments in minimally invasive locoregional treatment options for a variety of oncological diseases. Several of the world’s greatest experts will offer an innovative look on the oncological challenges medical practitioners deal with. Through a multidisciplinary approach, AMIOS will cross-pollinate knowledge from engineers, researchers and physicians from various disciplines, reaching the high level of education which is needed to fight off cancer.

In two days, participants will get the latest advancements in image-guided interventional oncology, such as irreversible electroporation (NanoKnife), radiofrequency ablation, microwave ablation, MR guided stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy, trans-arterial chemo- and radioembolisation. Furthermore, a variety of oncological diseases and their treatment options will be discussed in interactive and innovative presentations and discussion boards. Think of colorectal liver metastases, hepatocellular carcinoma, pancreatic cancer, lung cancer, renal and prostate carcinoma and others.

The city of Amsterdam will offer you many inspiring and surprising faces. No other city mixes cosmopolitan style and relaxed atmosphere quite like Amsterdam, where our hospitable nature attracts an excitingly diverse population. We invite you to join us and make our metropolis your own during your stay. Whether admiring the Golden Age gabled merchants’ houses of the old city centre or marvelling at the sleek skylines of the new Zuidas and harbour areas, you will see that Amsterdammers pride themselves on the city’s rich history while keeping focused on the future. Creative energy and innovation abound, strengthening and inspiring the established international business community. Home to some of the world’s most acclaimed works of art, with more canals than Venice, more bridges than Paris and nearly 7,000 monumental buildings, our compact floating city offers a variety of historical and cultural treasures. It’s no wonder Amsterdam’s historic canal ring has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Discover the city’s tradition as a jazz hub or simply soak up the local nightlife in a casual café – whatever you choose, we hope you enjoy our vibrant, open spirit.
