    JVIR audio 2: Mitigating the contrast media shortage

    JVIR audio 2: Mitigating the contrast media shortage

    "Interventional radiology practices are faced with instituting urgent changes in patient care to preserve contrast media for use in procedures for which alternative options are not available, or in emergent scenarios. In this communication, we propose an initial approach to case prioritization, as well as short-term strategies for management of existing supply to optimize utility and minimize waste."

    This recording provides an audio version of a special communication published in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (JVIR), "Mitigation Strategies for Interventional Radiology During a Global Contrast Media Shortage," by Nikki Keefe, MD, Kush R. Desai, MD, FSIR, Maureen P. Kohi, MD, FSIR, and Gloria Salazar, MD, FSIR.

    Read the Article in Press version of the article on the journal's website, jvir.org, including references and tables on "Interventional radiology procedure prioritization" and "Use of alternative contrast media."

    Episode 30: Improving patient care through the VIRTEX Data Registry

    Episode 30: Improving patient care through the VIRTEX Data Registry

     If you think, "You know, I do what other people do but I do it a little bit better," you really should know whether that is indeed the case. So , do I really do my procedure with the best efficiency?  the lowest cost? the lowest radiation? the lowest contrast dose? That's the idea.  Be armed with data." —Matthew S. Johnson, MD, FSIR

    Guest host Jaimin Shah, MD, speaks with  Raj Shah, MD, FSIR, and Matthew S. Johnson, MD, FSIR, about how participating in the VIRTEX Data Registry helps interventional radiologists demonstrate their value, improve patient care and strengthen the specialty.

    Just as the specialty  is innovative, we foster a culture where we want to be innovative. And we want to be nimble, just as our members are nimble. And so when we look at the DNA of how we operate,  we kind of say, "This is how you practice ... This is the way that we want to operate, as well."   —Keith Hume, SIR Executive Director


    In a special year-end review, Warren Krackov, MD, FSIR, speaks with SIR Executive Director Keith Hume and SIR Direction of Publications Brian Haefs about the top stories impacting interventional radiology in 2021 and what 2022 may bring. Plus, we share excerpts from the three most downloaded IR Quarterly articles of the year: 


    TACE and immunotherapy for intermediate-stage HCCThe macro effects of microaggressionsGenicular artery embolization: The future standard of care for inflammatory conditionsNote: This episode was recorded on Jan. 13, 2022.
