Plan Your Education Experience at SIR 2015

We listened. Attendees like hands-on learning that they can take back to their practices and institutions to improve patient care. This year, SIR 2015 offers a comprehensive IR education experience with even more interactivity and hands-on learning than ever and unparalleled access to experts across the spectrum. You’ll be able to fully customize your involvement by choosing from the meeting’s more than 400 scientific presentations and 250-plus hours of programming. The SIR 2015 program includes a wide array of new workshop formats—designed to meet the learning needs of all attendees.

General Session

These are the must-attend sessions that attendees rave about. The linchpins of the SIR Annual Scientific Meeting, they feature the specialty's top thought leaders on major, often controversial, issues in interventional radiology.









SIR’s traditional categorical courses have been revamped to information-packed "In-the-classroom" sessions.  If deep exploration of timely topics with lessons learned and case-based approaches is what you crave, then these sessions are for you.


Returning to SIR 2015 are Meet the Expert Sessions. These sessions require pre-registration.


In-the-clinic, In-the-lab & Learning lab workshops

This year’s workshop program has been completely re-envisioned to address the needs of all learners. SIR will offer three distinct types of workshops: topic-driven and procedure- and outcome-focused.

  • In-the-clinic: These cross-sectional imaging-heavy sessions will focus on consults and follow-up visits.
  • In-the-lab: These case-based teaching-focused workshops will address procedure technique and pitfalls.
  • Learning Lab: Get busy as experienced faculty proctor attendees during a full session of hands-on device use. 
    • Fee and pre-registration required
    • New! Learning Lab workshops will take place within SIR Expo in newly-designed learning labs.


In-the-clinic and In-the-lab sessions are practical “how I do it” sessions and will be strongly image-based. SIR 2015 workshops will clearly define basic and advanced sessions to aid attendees in finding the right workshops for them.


Scientific Sessions

The popular scientific sessions—the heart of SIR's Annual Scientific Meeting—feature moderated, peer-reviewed abstract presentations grouped into related categories.


SIR’s Scientific Poster displays will be located adjacent to the technical exhibits in SIR EXPO. Experiencing exponential growth is the last 5 years, Scientific Posters feature premier blind peer reviewed abstracts from around the globe.








SIR symposia traditionally focus on timely interventional radiology clinical topics.  This year’s half-day learning experience, exploring morbidity and mortality, kicks off the meeting on Saturday.
