The purpose of the CVIR Endovascular Podcast is to discuss endovascular and vascular interventions, and promote CVIR Endovascular - CIRSE's open access journal. This call will be achieved by highlighting the articles published in the journal, through interviewing many of our authors and a number of leaders in the field of interventional radiology.
The podcast is hosted by Prof. Jim Reekers, CVIR Endovascular’s Editor-in-Chief.
Episode 3: Interventional radiology as an independent medical specialty
It is inconceivable, not to mention detrimental to patients, that interventional radiology (IR) still lacks recognition as an independent medical specialty. Minimally invasive techniques are the future of medical treatments, and IR has been a leader in this field for 60 years, inventing and executing new and innovative treatments. In this episode, we talk to two experts, Mohamad Hamady (Imperial College London, London/GB) and Michael Lee (Beaumont Hospital, Dublin/IE), about where IR stands and how to move forward.
Be sure to read the editorial by M. Hamady and I. McCafferty mentioned in this episode: https://cvirendovasc.springeropen.com/articles/10.1186/s42155-020-00202-6.
Episode 2: Paediatric Interventional Radiology (PIR)
Paediatric interventional radiology (PIR) is a new and fast developing branch of interventional radiology. In this episode, renown PIRs Alex Barnacle (Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, London/UK) and Anne Marie Cahill (Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA/US) talk about the advantages and challenges of having dedicated interventional radiologists for treating children and young adults.
