SIR 2019 focuses on inclusivity, diversity and crowdsourcing “the best ideas”

Dan Sze (Palo Alto, USA), chair, 2019 Annual Meeting Program and Nadine Abi-Jaoudeh (Orange, USA), chair, 2019 Scientific Program, discuss the highlights of the 2019 Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) Annual Scientific Meeting. The programme-makers set out to turn some established ways of doing things on their head, and the “off-the-charts” energy of the meeting truly represented the diversity of interventional radiology, they say.

Constantino Peña was the chair of the 2019 Workshop Program.
