In this year's annual CIRSE meeting and postgraduate course, billed as the "world's top platform for specialists in all minimally invasive image-guided procedures", the programme has been designed around seven main themes, facilitating itinerary planning and allowing delegates to follow one of these themes with little or no overlap. This years main topics are:
- Vascular Interventions;
- Transcatheter Embolisation;
- Non-Vascular Interventions;
- Interventional Oncology;
- Neuro Interventions;
- Clinical Practice Development, and
The concept of main topics running parallel to avoid overlap has been fur ther expanded, adding neuro-interventions as the seventh topic in addition to transcatheter embolisation, non-vascular interventions, interventional oncology, vascular interventions, clinical practice and imaging.
The introduction of an extended neuro-interventional section was conceived to address the expanding role of the interventional radiologist in the management of stroke in hospitals the world over. Stroke prevention, imaging and treatment will be discussed in three special sessions. In addition, delegates will have the chance to have a closer look via two dedicated workshops and one hands-on workshop.
