Show How Interventional Radiology Research Improves Patients' Lives at Society of Interventional Radiology's 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting; Online Scientific Abstract Submission Open Until Sept. 22

FAIRFAX, VA--(Marketwired - August 09, 2016) - The Society of Interventional Radiology is accepting scientific abstracts covering all areas of vascular and nonvascular interventional radiology for its 42nd Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held March 4-9, 2017, in Washington, D.C. Practicing experts, early career professionals, research scientists, clinical associates, trainees and medical students are invited to submit scientific abstracts for oral or poster presentation by Sept. 22.

Researchers will have the opportunity to advance the field of image-guided interventions by sharing their basic science results, device and procedure innovations and clinical outcomes research at SIR 2017 -- the world's most comprehensive interventional radiology meeting, which attracts more than 5,000 attendees from around the globe. Interventional radiology addresses many of today's medical problems, including cancer, cardiovascular and venous disease and stroke.

Oral presentations and selected print posters will be published in SIR's flagship publication, the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, and on its website. Selected abstracts may be designated as "Distinguished," "Featured" or "Abstract of the Year." Additionally, national and international consumer and trade media reports on SIR medical news.

Research awards to support travel are available through SIR Foundation for medical students, residents and fellows whose abstracts are accepted for oral presentation at SIR 2017. SIR's International Scholarship program enables physicians (who are within 10 years of completion of training and who are practicing outside North America) an opportunity to train and learn at the meeting. SIR also offers two SIR 2017 scholarships for IRs-in-training: the SIR Medical Student Scholarship and SIR Resident-in-Training Scholarship.
