It also becomes increasingly clear that intervention radiology is a profession that you have to do together in a team. The doctors and the lab technicians play an essential role together. The specialized intervention laboratory technician is seen in more and more hospitals. In some hospitals, laboratory technicians and physician assistants carry out interventions themselves. To maintain the quality of the team, specific scientific information is important for this target group. The conference is intended for the entire intervention team and will, as with the very successful previous editions, contain sessions for all members of the team. In particular, subjects will be dealt with that are not dealt with at other meetings in the Netherlands or that are very specific to interventional radiology. This conference is also an excellent opportunity to get to know the colleagues of the other intervention teams and to exchange experiences. There is ample opportunity to get acquainted with the latest developments at the technical exhibition. Conference Sessions: The conference sessions are diabetic foot, oncological intervention radiology topics, endovascular topics and new developments in interventional radiology. The dead or alive session will discuss the relevance of different treatments and a top speaker will be asked for the honorable Auke Nawijn lecture.
