Society of Interventional Radiology hosts 35th Annual Scientific Meeting
Date:3/2/2010

FAIRFAX, Va.The Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) will present the latest research on treatments for individuals with liver, breast, soft tissue, colon, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancers; painful spinal fractures; peripheral arterial disease (PAD); uterine fibroids; and more at its 35th Annual Scientific Meeting March 13-18 at the Tampa Convention Center.

More than 5,000 physicians, scientists and allied health professionals are expected to attend this premier IR event. Central to the meeting's theme of "IR Innovation" will be the presentation of painstakingly researched data on how prolific interventional radiologists have been as inventors and the impact their innovations have had in advancing patient care and building the specialty. Hot topic main sessions include a look at practicing interventional radiology in extreme situations (wars, pandemics and natural catastrophes); IR frontiers (molecular medicine and nanotechnology); vertebral augmentation (past, present and future treatments); and future interventional oncology advances. A new categorical course will examine the most controversial interventional radiologyrelated studies of the past yearincluding critical review of the latest advances for topics like vertebroplasty, stroke and yttrium-90 cancer treatments.

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.
