Society of Interventional Radiology hosts 34th annual scientific meeting
Date:2/26/2009

The Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) will present the latest research on treatments for individuals with kidney, prostate and bone cancer; herniated disks; peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and related complications; childbirth difficulties; and more at its 34th Annual Scientific Meeting March 7-12� at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif.

Highlights of embargoed key interventional radiology studies being presented are listed below. Illustrations and broadcast-quality footage are available for some stories; interviews with lead researchers can be arranged on request.

Cancer Advances Using Focal Therapy/3-D Mapping for Prostate Cancer: Look, No Surgery Interventional radiologist can tailor treatment to each patient's disease and offer good news in the form of the so-called "male lumpectomy" for men with prostate cancer. "Instead of removing the entire prostate, or freezing the entire prostate or using radiation on the entire prostate, interventional radiologists can visualize where the cancer is and just destroy the cancer," says study author Gary M. Onik, M.D., interventional radiologist. And details about a better mapping biopsy for determining the extent of prostate cancer will be given. (Embargoed for release until Monday, March 9, 2009, 9 a.m. Eastern) VNR, B-roll and illustrations are available.

Killing Kidney Cancer With Cold: Remarkable Results More than 75 percent of individuals who are diagnosed with kidney cancer have tumors that are 4 centimeters or less in size. A leading cancer center weighs in with remarkable three-year results about the safety and efficacy of freezingor using cryoablationfor kidney cancer tumors. It's important that individuals and doctors are aware of the latest treatments advancesespecially since the incidence of kidney cancer has been steadily increasing in this country over the past 30 years, notes Christos Georgiades, M.D., Ph.D.,
