Abstract Recognition

Sharing research in interventional radiology builds connections, collaboration and your community.

Congratulations! The following four abstracts were selected by the SIR 2022 scientific chairs and are recognized with the distinction of Abstract of the Year. Please join us on Wednesday, June 15, 10:30 a.m.–12 p.m. for the Closing Plenary to honor their accomplishments

Abstracts of the Year

The Abstract of the Year designation was created to highlight the best scientific work submitted to the meeting by scheduling the presentation in the highly-attended plenary. The Scientific Program Committee felt that your work was worthy of particular attention due to its overall quality, timeliness and content.
