ch on the use of stent-grafts for the treatment of aortic pathologies, which dramatically changed the way physicians today manage thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections.

Matthew A. Mauro, M.D., FSIR, is the Ernest H. Wood Distinguished Professor of Radiology, Surgery and Biomedical Engineering, and chair of the department of radiology at the University of North Carolina (UNC) Medical Center. He is the chair of the department of radiology and professor of surgery and biomedical engineering at the UNC School of Medicine and UNC Hospitals, where he has spent his entire academic career.

An early proponent of an expanded role for interventional radiology in venous access, endovascular therapy of aortic aneurysms and oncologic interventions, Mauro's textbook, "Image-Guided Interventions," is a standard reference in the field. Mauro has served as president of the Society of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology (now SIR) and chair of the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Research and Education Foundation (now SIR Foundation).

Lenny K. Tan, M.D., FSIR, emeritus consultant in the diagnostic imaging department at National University Hospital (NUH) Singapore (an academic medical center formed by the amalgamation of the Medical School and the National University Hospital), has had a major role in the development of interventional radiology in Asia. Instrumental in the establishment of interventional radiology in the Asia-Pacific region, Tan was the first radiologist to introduce a comprehensive service in interventional radiology in the 1970s at Singapore General Hospital. Tan was the first full professor of radiology ever appointed by the National University of Singapore (NUS) in 1990. In addition to introducing to Singapore treatments and techniques pivotal to the field of interventional radiologysuch as the CT scan and advancements in interventional oncologyover his decades in practice, Tan has also trained scores of intervention
