Preceding the inaugural speech by Prof. dr. Rick Haas, a symposium will be held on September 3rd, 2021 entitled; “The Best of both worlds”. Worldwide, sarcoma patients are not always referred for preoperative radiotherapy, where postoperative radiotherapy may be associated with permanent side effects, hampering normal functioning and quality of life. A large international faculty will address these issues during the symposium. The theme of this symposium will be bone and soft tissue tumors, which will be held via a digital platform. Distinguished national and international guest speakers will inform the “Best of both worlds” participants on state of the art in diagnosing and treating these rare tumors.
