Interventional radiologists receive honors from SIR Foundation
Date:3/22/2014

SAN DIEGO (March 22, 2014)Ziv J Haskal, M.D., FSIR, an interventional radiologist and editor-in-chief of the Society of Interventional Radiology's (SIR's) flagship publication, the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (JVIR), will receive the Leaders in Innovation Award from SIR Foundation during the society's Annual Scientific Meeting in San Diego.

Haskal, professor with the department of radiology and medical imaging at the University of Virginia Health System in Charlottesville, will be recognized for his pioneering body of work, which includes research into the development of the transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt or TIPS, dialysis access and embolization procedures.

"Ziv Haskal is one of the most creative, innovative interventionalists of our generation who combines the best out-of-the-box thinking with formidable intelligence and insight," said John A. Kaufman, M.D., M.S., FSIR, chair of the SIR Foundation board of directors. "He doesn't see the horizon, he sees over it," added Kaufman, professor and Frederick S. Keller Chair of Interventional Radiology at the Dotter Interventional Institute in Portland, Ore.

Haskal's early research in TIPS led to the creation of the TIPS endograft, a device used by the majority of doctors worldwide, resulting in markedly improved patient outcomes and reduced symptoms and need for reintervention. His work in the use of access stent grafts proved them to be the first therapy superior to angioplasty, and his research was subsequently published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Dr. Gary J. Becker Young Investigator Award

Instituted in 1990 to recognize excellence in academic research for SIR members early in their careers, the Dr. Gary J. Becker Young Investigator Award, named in honor of the founding editor of JVIR, spotlights the importance of the young investigator in developing interventional solutions for the future. <
