Radiological Intervention Day the Netherlands (RIDN) 2020 is organized by Congress Care and will be held on Jan 10, 2020 at ReeHorst, Ede, Gelderland, Netherlands. Description: Oncological and non-vascular interventions have become an increasing part of the daily work of the interventional radiologist over the last 10 years. What initially started in the academic centers is now starting to broaden further and further across the other hospitals in the Netherlands. There are already many larger hospitals that do standard oncological interventions and it is to be expected that this will penetrate even further, also in the smaller hospitals. Oncological interventions cannot be viewed separately from percutaneous palliative treatments and also pain relief. In particular, the latter, image-guided pain relief by interventional radiologists, has hardly been developed in the Netherlands. There is a big chance here. The training and the clinical task of the interventional radiologist, who is going to perform oncological interventions, will also change. The role of the intervention labs will also change as a result and the whole team, including physician assistants, will get a different, more clinical, perspective. Lots of new opportunities for the future of interventional radiology. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
