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
A fulsome February JVIR awaits you readers. Broad reaches, big spans, divers portions to digest.
Included: Embolotherapy for adhesive capsulitis; false lumen thrombosis through exclusion of false lumen distal entry tears; type II endoleak embolization with EvOH; microwave lung and renal tumor ablations; cryoablation of mesothelioma; aspirin use during renal biopsies; cone-beam CT for predicting early TACE outcomes; radioembolization of hepatic metastases of renal masses; and resin radioembolization without gastroduodenal arteries.
Other fascinating topics: a 2-year analysis of IR and the Sunshine Act; emergent interventions in living-donor liver transplant arterial thrombosis; the SIR perspective on occupational neck and back pain interventional radiologists; esophageal artery embolization in hemoptysis; embolotherapy in prostate cancer related hematuria; in vitro modeling of Y-90 flow dynamics…
Finally, if you're attending the SIR 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting in Washington, D.C., plan to attend the JVIR Editors' Writing and Reviewing Workshop (offered on March 6, 7 and 8). Our goal is to improve writing skills and manuscript preparation, support success in study design and presentation, and help authors understand how to best prepare a paper for publication. Read more and register by Feb. 15.
