About the Society of Interventional Radiology

The Society of Interventional Radiology is a nonprofit, professional medical society representing more than 5,600 practicing interventional radiology physicians, scientists and clinical associates, dedicated to improving patient care through the limitless potential of image-guided therapies. SIR’s members work in a variety of settings and at different professional levels—from medical students and residents to university faculty and private practice physicians.

About the Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation

The Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation is dedicated to advancing the clinical needs of interventional radiology by specializing in developing investigators trained in conducting basic and clinical trials research, which provides the basis for the innovative treatments delivered through image-guided techniques. SIR Foundation has initiated a new program structure that proactively fosters research priorities in the areas of clinical research, research policy and research education. These priority areas drive our program, grant-making and fundraising decisions.

About interventional radiology

Clinicians in the field of interventional radiology pioneered minimally invasive treatment, which reaches the source of a medical problem through blood vessels or directly through a tiny incision in the skin to deliver a precise, targeted treatment. Interventional radiology treatments performed by board-certified experts can deliver solutions with less risk, less pain and shorter recovery time than traditional surgery. These treatments are delivered in collaboration with the patient’s care team. The specialty was founded in the early 1960s. Today interventional radiology is synonymous with modern medicine.

Media contacts

The Society of Interventional Radiology communications staff works with members of the news media to facilitate access to many resources and helps reporters cover issues about minimally invasive, image-guided therapeutic treatments.
