- Watch a brief introduction to Gold Medalist Michael Dake, MD, FSIR, who published seminal research on the use of stent-grafts for the treatment of aortic pathologies, which dramatically changed the way physicians today manage thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections.
Also honored for excellence in interventional radiology and advancements in patient care was Matthew Mauro, MD, FSIR, whose textbook, “Image-Guided Interventions,” is a standard reference in the field. Watch his introduction during the SIR Gold Medal presentation.
Lenny K. Tan, MD, FSIR, was instrumental in the establishment of interventional radiology in the Asia-Pacific region. Learn more about this SIR 2014 Gold Medalist, the first radiologist to introduce a comprehensive service in interventional radiology in the 1970s at Singapore General Hospital.
