The premier journal of vascular and interventional radiology

Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology

JVIR is the official scientific journal of the Society of Interventional Radiology. For more than two decades, this peer-reviewed journal has been the preferred reference of interventional radiologists, radiologists, cardiologists, vascular surgeons, neurosurgeons and other clinicians who need current and reliable information on every aspect of vascular and interventional radiology.

Each issue of JVIR covers the most critical and cutting-edge medical, minimally invasive, radiological, pathological and socioeconomic issues of importance to vascular and interventional radiologists. JVIR brings monthly clinical studies, laboratory investigations, commentaries, reports on interventional procedures, devices, or unique anatomic findings, CME articles, book reviews, “extreme” case studies, societal position statements, and standards of practice, as well as a variety of social and multimedia offerings.

From the editor 

The JVIR year ends strong and hot. The only cooling is the tumors, which are reported as both heated and frozen. Among some of the oncological topics: microwave lung ablation in 183 patients, cryoablation of retroperitoneal sarcomas, thermal ablation of small cell lung cancer, and comparisons of TACE vs. radio frequency ablation of early HCC, and a UNOS population study of locoregional HCC interventions in transplant patients. Venous interventions span imaging after filter retrievals, echo-imaged catheter tip thrombi, transjugular AV fistula interventions, and venous closure devices. Lymphatics include retrograde thoracic duct access by sonography and doxycycline sclerotherapy in children with lymphatic malformations. PVA vs. glue comparisons in portal vein embolization are followed by lab investigations of salivary gland ablation, gastroprotection during intentional gastric embolization, evaluation of lead aprons and much more.

JVIR Access has expanded its senior commentaries with separate postings crafted by members of the SIR Residents Fellows and Students Section (RFS), and @JVIRMedia keeps you plugged in with short bursts and IR highlights. Follow your podcasts, Instagram and Facebook postings.

Finally, we are now accepting potential cases for presentation at the Extreme IR session at the SIR 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting in Washington, D.C. Send us your brief case description and potentially be awarded your podium slot for presenting your Extreme IR or Extreme M&M case:

JVIR’s impact factor—one measure of a journal’s quality and influence journals within scientific and academic communities—has climbed to 2.570 in 2015, and its ranking in its subject category has moved up 6 points, according to data released by Thomson Reuters. The 2015 impact factor represents a 6 percent increase over 2014, a 5-year impact factor increase of 24 percent, and a continued growth under the current editorship.
