Society of Interventional Radiology inducts new fellows
Date:5/31/2011

FAIRFAX, Va.The Society of Interventional Radiology inducted 26 new Fellows during SIR's 36th Annual Scientific Meeting this past March in Chicago, Ill. An SIR Fellow (or FSIR) is an interventional radiologist who has been an active or corresponding SIR member for at least five years and who has distinguished himself or herself individually and has been recognized by the society as a leading contributor in educational, investigational, organizational or professional aspects of interventional radiology.

"Being named a Society of Interventional Radiology Fellow is the highest recognition by one's peers and acknowledges sustained outstanding performance," said SIR President Timothy P. Murphy, M.D., FSIR, who represents the society's nearly 4,700 doctors, scientists and allied health professionals dedicated to improving health care through minimally invasive treatments. "SIR commends these Fellows for their high levels of scholarship and professionalism that embody the society's dedication and focus on treatments that preserve a patient's quality of life and are often better and safer than traditional surgical options," added Murphy, an interventional radiologist and director of the Vascular Disease Research Center at Rhode Island Hospital in Providence. Fewer than 10 percent of SIR's 4,700 members have achieved this honor.
