The volatility of the current political climate is playing itself out in the health care arena: financial repercussions and economic ramifications are inevitable. One thing is certain—interventional radiology needs a strong voice on Capitol Hill fighting for our specialty and the patients who benefit from our care.  

As the nonpartisan political action committee of the Society of Interventional Radiology, SIRPAC is dedicated to advancing the interests of SIR members, their practices, and patients before Congress.


SIRPAC builds relationships with key members of Congress and their staff, helps pro-health care and pro-IR individuals achieve or maintain national offices, and supports legislation conducive to innovation and patient access to IR services.
