Submission guidelines

“I invite you to submit your original science to the world’s largest interventional radiology meeting to ensure that your research reaches a global audience. We’re looking for high-quality scientific data, studies that provide innovative patient-driven solutions, and papers that elucidate the rapid changes in the world of health economics. Based on what we’ve heard from you, hot topics at the meeting will include PAE, UFE, stroke, cancer, venous disease and DVT, CLI, and the IR/DR residency and curriculum. We’ll be looking for studies that address these topics and so much more.”
