THE Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. During these 30 years, SIR has grown from a closed club with fewer than 100 members to an open society with 4,000 members. The history of the Society and its exciting growth is detailed on the SIR web site, www.sirweb.org. This issue of JVIR also contains commemorative articles of some founding members on the formative years of SIR, its transition to an open society, perspectives for its future, and the… 
Securing the future of interventional radiology with lessons from the past
TLDR
Reform is necessary in order for interventional radiology to succeed as a speciality and radiologists should aspire to be more than service providers; instead, they should function as clinicians.
The 26th Annual Charles T. Dotter Lecture: IR Generations
TLDR
Iam the first second-generation interventional radiologist to ive the Dotter Lecture, and the oldest angiography and Intervenional Radiology Society in the country, 10 years before the organization of hat is now the SIR.
The expanding role of interventional radiology in head and neck surgery
TLDR
The main focus of this review is on the vascular applications of interventional radiology in the head and neck, which can be divided into three main categories: management of acute haemorrhage, management of vascular lesions, and venous sampling.

  • A. Ciarallo, C. T. Nguyen, L. Stein
  • Medicine
    McGill journal of medicine : MJM : an international forum for the advancement of medical sciences by students
  • 2007
TLDR
The present article will try to illustrate some of the key procedures of IR through a rapid overview of angioplasty and embolotherapy, and reaffirms IR as a technique-based specialty of medicine where instruments and new technologies play a crucial role.
The future of interventional and neurointerventional radiology: learning lessons from the past.
TLDR
The history of IR, the challenges facing this rapidly evolving profession and recent developments occurring globally that are essential in maintaining expertise, securing future growth and improving patient outcomes in the modern multidisciplinary practice of medicine are reviewed.
INTERVENTIONAL MEDICINE
Interventional radiology, which originated within diagnostic radiology, is a newly developed medical field of minimally invasive endovascular therapy. Dr. Charles T. Dotter, who is widely regarded as
Pregnancy and the working interventional radiologist.
TLDR
Little has been published to guide women who may become pregnant during their training and career, and fully understanding the risks may help women to choose interventional radiology and practicing women interventionalists to stay productive during their child-bearing years.
Awareness of interventional radiology among patients referred to the interventional radiology department: a survey of patients in a large Canadian community hospital.
TLDR
These data quantify and strongly support the views that even among patients specifically referred to IR for a procedure, the majority of people are unaware of what the field is or may offer; and most patients were satisfied with their IR experience.
Future of IR: Emerging Techniques, Looking to the Future…and Learning from the Past
TLDR
An overview of the in-coming developments that are catching on at this moment, particularly focusing on three items: the new applications of existing techniques, particularly embolotherapy and interventional oncology; the cutting-edge devices; the imaging technologies at the forefront of the image-guidance.
Clinical interventional radiology: parallels with the evolution of general surgery.
TLDR
It is clearly time to understand that the benefits the interventional radiologist brings to the patient far exceed his ability to synthesize imaging data with catheter skills.

The "nonsurgical" treatment of iliofemoral arteriosclerotic obstruction.
TLDR
Since the original report (1) on transluminal recanalization of arteriosclerotic obstructions, the method has been used a total of 113 times in 74 different patients from January 1964 to September 1965, with particular attention to the problems encountered, the current criteria for case selection, and areas of future promise.
Transluminal Treatment of Arteriosclerotic Obstruction: Description of a New Technic and a Preliminary Report of Its Application
TLDR
It is satisfied that percutaneous transluminal recanalization is the treatment of choice for many lesions of the femoral and popliteal arteries and this method is ready for application to obstructions up to approximately 10 cm.
Charles Dotter: interventional radiologist.
TLDR
The concepts and innovations of Charles Dotter, inventor of angioplasty and widely proclaimed father of interventional radiology, affect the practices of all physicians engaged in the treatment of coronary and peripheral vascular disease.
Inpatient admissions for interventional radiology: philosophy of patient management.
TLDR
The authors have established a cardiovascular radiology admitting service for well-screened, elective patients, with advantages including a broader patient referral base, improved rapport with clinical colleagues and patients, improved follow-up data, and rapid evaluation and treatment, resulting in short hospital stays.
Radiological follow-up of transluminally inserted vascular endoprostheses: an experimental study using expanding spirals.
TLDR
A technique for transluminal implantation of vascular endoprostheses was developed and can be clinically implemented and lends itself to many applications in the vascular field.
Clinical responsibility in interventional radiology.
TLDR
The authors suggest that further development in the field will be slowed if radiologists do not take a more active clinical role and training standards in radiology must also reflect the evolving role of the radiologist.
The decline of diagnostic radiology: call to action. 1989 Dotter lecture.
Major socioeconomic changes in the practice of medicine in the past 2 decades have had a great impact on diagnostic radiology and have encouraged other physicians and entrepreneurs to enter many
Formation of intrahepatic portosystemic shunts using a balloon dilatation catheter: preliminary clinical experience.
Six patients with advanced cirrhosis and portal hypertension had life-threatening upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage from esophageal varices. The varices were obliterated angiographically, using the
Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt: a nonoperative approach to life-threatening variceal bleeding.
Portosystemic venous shunts may be created nonoperatively with a Grüntzig balloon dilatation catheter using the transjugular route. The authors achieved technical success with this shunt in 15 of 20
Self-expanding endovascular prosthesis: an experimental study.
TLDR
Angiographic and histologic analyses showed that the prosthesis had a very low thrombogenicity when it was well adapted to the native vessel diameter and that it was incorporated into the vessel wall by a new intima by the 3d week after implantation.
