Interventional Radiology Treatment for CCSVI in MS Patients
Advancing MS Research: A Look at a Vein-opening Treatment
About 500,000 people in the United States have MS generally thought of as an incurable, disabling autoimmune disease in which a person's body attacks its own cells. A new study explores an endovascular treatment used by interventional radiologists to widen the veins in the neck and chest to improve blood flow. Will it encourage additional studies for its use as a treatment option for chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency or CCSVI in individuals with multiple sclerosis? Such treatments could be transformative for patients. (Embargoed for release until Monday, March 28, 2011, at 8 a.m. Eastern) B-roll will be available.

Cancer Advances
Busting Liver Cancer: Is an Interventional Radiology Treatment Safer and Life Extending?
In the United States, 20,000 cases of primary liver cancer are diagnosed each year; for metastatic colon cancer, that number is 150,000 per year. Interventional radiologists have pioneered an intra-arterial treatment for those with liver cancer. A large multi-institutional study provides new inf
