Society of Interventional Radiology explores 'IR evidence' in patient care
Date:2/28/2012

FAIRFAX, Va.The Society of Interventional Radiology will feature minimally invasive scientific advances and new discoveries that may change the way dozens of diseases are treated at its 37th Annual Scientific Meeting March 24-29 at San Francisco's Moscone Center.

More than 5,000 physicians, scientists and allied health professionals are expected to attend this premier interventional radiology event. The meeting's theme, "IR Evidence," reflects a growing commitment to develop and prove care-changing advances in dozens of practice areas important to the specialty. Nearly 400 scientific presentations and posters substantiating patient outcomes in interventional radiology research and approximately 150 technical exhibits and product demonstrations will be showcased during the 2012 Annual Scientific Meeting.

"This year's Annual Scientific Meeting theme is 'IR Evidence,' and it is the Society of Interventional Radiology's goal to critically examine the current evidence in the specialty and identify those areas where more data is necessary," stated Mahmood K. Razavi, M.D., Annual Scientific Meeting chair. "Because innovation still requires creativity, don't miss 'Extreme IR, where the panel explores solutions to unusual and seemingly undoable cases. The 'Care-changing Clinical Trials' plenary will examine important recent discoveries that may change the way interventional radiology benefits patients," added Razavi, an interventional radiologist at St. Joseph Vascular Institute in Orange, Calif.

"The scientific sessions at this year's Annual Scientific Meeting will include studies that highlight current research relating to the care of patients with cancer, peripheral arterial disease, stroke and venous disease and the potential role of treating chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency, or CCSVI, in patients with multiple sclerosis," noted Gary P. Siskin, M.D., FSIR, Annual Scientific Meeting scientific program chair. "The meeting's fast-p
