Society of Interventional Radiology: 38th Annual Scientific Meeting
Date:4/10/2013

FAIRFAX, Va.From miniature ice balls that can zap pain and lung tumors to an image-guided, minimally invasive method to shrink the prostate, physicians will present the latest research on cutting-edge treatments at the Society of Interventional Radiology's 38th Annual Scientific Meeting April 13󈝾 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. The meeting is centered on the theme "IR Reaching Out" and delivers education, resources and outcome-based evidence to attendees from a broad range of diverse clinical interests and practice settings.

Listed below are several examples of research being presented at SIR 2013, illustrating why the meeting attracts a diverse group of experts, including community or university-based physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners, radiology assistants, nurses, technologists as well as hospital administrators and industry partners.

For Men
Nonsurgical treatment shrinks enlarged prostate
Men who suffer from enlarged prostatesprompting frequent nighttime trips to the bathroom may have a minimally invasive option to shrink the gland. According to early reports from the first prospective U.S. study, prostatic artery embolization (PAE) reduces blood flow to the prostate, shrinking it and significantly reducing symptoms.
Medical illustrations are available.

Body Reshaping
Sculpting beautiful bodies with lasers
Fat-melting lasers are not only safe and effective, they could replace the surgical "tummy tuck," suggests research on more than 2,000 women and men. The safe new treatment melts fat, which is then suctioned out of the body.

Freezing Treatment
Freezing out pain Chronic pain can be helped by freezing damaged nerves, suggests a study of a minimally invasive treatment called cryoneurolysis. The treatment could provide relief to the more than 15 million Americans who suffer from chronic nerve
