NYRS INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY SECTION

Dear Members & Colleagues:

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the website of the Interventional Radiology section of the New York Roentgen Society. Last year, we became successful at bringing together the NY IR community with the creation of this section. With the help of the executive committee of the NYRS, we successfully planned case competitions, angio clubs and didactic lectures for our community.

Continuing our efforts from the prior year, we would like to further increase awareness of Interventional Radiology among the medical school and graduate medical education community, which continues to be exceptionally important in the current era of Integrated IR-DR training.

In the long term, we seek to provide unique educational experiences for practicing and future Interventional Radiologists. We plan to have several meetings throughout the year solely dedicated to the clinical, technical and economic aspects of our field. Hot topic discussions and guest speakers from around the country will allow us to integrate the newest techniques into our clinical practices. We will continue the "Angio Club" tradition of sharing interesting cases in a more formal setting as we have done in the past over many decades and have added “Case of the Year” and Jeopardy competitions. Lastly, we seek to preserve and chronicle the history and innovative spirit of our specialty through scholarships, grants and partnership with industry.

On behalf of the executive committee of the Interventional Radiology section of the New York Roentgen Society, I welcome you to join us in pushing this endeavor forward. Please make sure your Society membership is up to date to take full advantage of all the offerings from the IR Section. I look forward to many years of scientific rigor, creative exploration and innovation.
