March 26, 2016

"Evaluating these aesthetic results with a method that can be repeated and is easy to use is now fundamental in order to compare different types of treatments and different clinics. This means we can inform patients adequately regarding the expected results and also help improve the techniques".

This international meeting will bring together specialists from various different countries and the target audience is breast surgeons, oncoplastic breast surgeons, plastic surgeons, oncologists, engineers and other researchers interested in this topic.

The objectives of TSIO include making information available regarding the current methods that are being used to assess the aesthetic results of breast cancer local treatment, showing the results of groups working with objective evaluation methods, demonstrating some of the new pathways regarding objective methodology and promoting collaboration in this area of research. The event also aims to generate new ideas for projects and encourage new contacts.
