Calling all Interventional Radiologists interested in Interventional Oncology!

The Interventional Oncology Special Interest Group will meet in Hobart March 20-21, 2018, during the Annual TROG meeting. All IRs interested in Interventional Oncology are encouraged to attend and participate in the planning of future IO research projects in Australia and New Zealand.

This will be a "research meeting” focussing on current, future and aspirational research projects. The IO committee has two projects that have been accepted for inclusion in this meeting:

    • Percutaneous ablation of renal masses
    • Percutaneous ablation of lung cancer 

If successful, these projects will receive the full resources of TROG and be the first research projects across a formal network of IR Departments across Australia and New Zealand. This would be a great step forward for Trans-Tasman IO, and presents an opportunity for all IRs to get involved. 

Future research strategy workshops will also be held, including for research projects in other systems such as hepatobiliary oncology, and how the IO Group can best work with RANZCR and IRSA to support IO. Now is the time to get involved and help shape the future of interventional oncology.

A special registration fee for IRs is available for $340, which will cover all IO sessions (Tuesday and Wednesday). 

Medtronic and Terumo have generously sponsored the IR content for this meeting.

We hope to see you there!

Calling all Interventional Radiologists,

TROG Interventional Oncology group

The TROG Interventional Oncology group has been created for Interventional Radiologists
with an interest in oncology, and provides an important opportunity for IRs to drive the research
base and evidence supporting interventional oncology procedures and techniques. TROG is one
of the largest clinical trials groups in the world, and the IO special interest group will facilitate the
creation of a research network for Interventional Oncologists, and provide crucial access to
TROG resources for research advice, study design, biostatistics, ethics, grant writing, collaboration,
data collection and analysis. Membership of the TROG IO special interest group is open to any
Interventional Radiologists with an interest in oncology. Please register on-line at www.trog.com.au/Membership.
Interventional Radiology will have at least two research projects for discussion at the 2018 TROG ASM.
These projects will focus on the management of renal masses using percutaneous ablation, and a combined
approach for the treatment of lung cancer using microwave ablation and stereotactic radiotherapy. Future
research projects will also be discussed and planned, including those involving hepatobiliary oncology and
liver interventions.  For further details, please contact TROG via email: trog@trog.com.au
