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
September marks our second annual letters issue. My inaugural letters editorial, “We dream in data, but we live in letters,” was published in the November 2016 issue of JVIR. What I wrote there is still true in 2017: we aspire to being an evidence-driven specialty but still derive great value from innovative, cautionary or range-finding information that case-based learning provides.
Most of this year’s Letters issue is devoted to a broad and remarkable range of cases, techniques, and unusual findings—plenty of the “new" that you can use. I encourage you to flip the physical pages of the bound issue, to see the full scope.
September JVIR is nevertheless led by full-length important papers, including our societal guidelines for trans arterial chemo- and bland embolization of hepatic malignancies; the ALBI and PALBI grades for predicting post-TACE survival; comparisons of radial vs. femoral approaches for TACE; comparisons of TACE and RF ablation vs. surgical resection for 2–3 cm HCC; the national trial of a temporary combined central venous catheter and naval filter for ICU use (and an FDA-authored commentary); and the role of dual-energy CT for diagnosis of GI hemorrhage (and commentary).
Turn on (to our blog jviraccess.org), tune in (to our podcasts) and turn out (for our Twitter feeds @JVIRMedia). The menu is rich.

In response to the enormous popularity of the JVIR Writing and Reviewing Workshops held at SIR 2017, JVIR is pleased to announce a monthly online workshop, the "JVIR Writing Club."
In each session, participants will have the opportunity to improve manuscript preparation and writing/review skills, learn about study design and presentation, and learn how to best prepare an article for publication.
We also seek draft manuscripts for discussion. Anonymity will be protected, and the discussion productive and confined to the event. To submit a draft manuscript, please email it as an attachment to email@example.com. Our goal is to discuss 2–3 manuscripts per session.Click to see the upcoming schedule and register for a session.
