SIR DISCLAIMER

A primary goal of the Society of Interventional Radiology is ensuring high-quality outcomes and patient safety in vascular and interventional radiology. The clinical practice guidelines of the Society of Interventional Radiology attempt to define practice principles that generally should assist in producing high quality medical care. These guidelines are voluntary and are not rules. A physician may deviate from these guidelines, as necessitated by the individual patient and available resources. These practice guidelines should not be deemed inclusive of all proper methods of care or exclusive of other methods of care that are reasonably directed towards the same result. Other sources of information may be used in conjunction with these principles to produce a process leading to high quality medical care. The ultimate judgment regarding the conduct of any specific procedure or course of management must be made by the physician, who should consider all circumstances relevant to the individual clinical situation. Adherence to the SIR Quality Improvement Program will not assure a successful outcome in every situation. It is prudent to document the rationale for any deviation from the suggested practice guidelines in the department policies and procedure manual or in the patient’s medical record.

13. SIR Policy on Exclusive Contracts and Carve-outs for Interventional Radiology Services
SIR recognizes the practice of exclusive contracting between hospitals and radiology groups for radiology services is long-standing and that such contracts can be mutually beneficial to both parties. However, if the exclusive contract provides a carve-out or excludes interventional radiology services (e.g., peripheral interventions, musculoskeletal interventions, non-invasive testing) so that non-radiologists may perform them, independent practice interventional radiologists with appropriate privileges at the facility should be afforded the same opportunity to provide these services.
