About SIO Central

SIO Central is an online, open-access, community for Interventional Oncology professionals to engage in 24/7, 365 days a year. IO Central is designed to advance Interventional Oncology (IO) as the 4th pillar of cancer therapy alongside medical, surgical and radiation oncology worldwide.

The goals of SIO Central are:

  • To bring together physicians, researchers, industry and members of the IO community-at-large for online dialogue and learning;
  • To create an open access online community with discussion forums, special interest groups, and news feeds;
  • To establish an electronic newsletter that pushes out the latest information available on IO and draws individuals interested in IO to the IO online community;
  • To actively engage the IO community through interactive Tumor Boards and Expert Panels on diseases and technology;
  • To archive the sessions from the WCIO meeting to provide enduring education to the IO Community for individuals to access on demand; and
  • To leverage emerging communication technologies, including social media vehicles, to connect IO professionals with each other and engage them in online discussions related to IO.
