Media alert: Society of Interventional Radiology's Annual Scientific Meeting

WHAT: Nearly 5,300 doctors/scientists/allied health professionals will attend SIR 2014, the world's most comprehensive meeting dedicated to research that directly benefits patients with image-guided, minimally invasive medicine.

  • Explore new technologies and treatments, including prostatic artery embolization, renal denervation, robotics and ablative cancer therapies.
  • Find expert interview opportunities, news conference showcasing current research Monday, March 24.
  • Review 500 scientific presentations, 250 hours of educational programming and approximately 150 technical exhibits and product demonstrations.

WHEN: Saturday, March 22Thursday, March 27, 2014

WHERE: San Diego Convention Center: News conference room: 15A; news room: 15B

HIGHLIGHTS: Also at SIR 2014:

  • Follow robust discussions regarding timely issues such as the economics of health care: reimbursements, the Affordable Care Act and other financial challenges in daily practice and learn how interventional radiologists at home and abroad are working to improve quality measures.
  • Attend scientific presentations covering dozens of categories including, arterial interventions (aneurysm/dissection, angioplasty/stent placement, embolization); interventional oncology (ablation, chemoembolization, radioembolization); venous interventions (angioplasty/stent placement, thrombolysis/thrombectomy); dialysis interventions; education and training and health care policy.
  • Listen as interventional radiology luminaries provide insight and authoritative discourse on a wide range of topics, including the impact that the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), Medicare and other regulatory bodies have on the character of interventional radiology training.
