The new SIR data registry

With the arrival of VIRTEX, interventional radiology is ready to take a major step forward in advancing patient care and enhancing recognition of the specialty’s capabilities. It will be the gold standard for clinical IR data to drive improvements in quality, practice performance, and innovations for years to come. VIRTEX enables your practice and/or institution to:

  • Prove that IR therapies can be first-line solutions that are less invasive and more efficient than surgical approaches
  • Strengthen data-driven, evidence-base care that reduces variation in treatment
  • Inform and benefit from the development and implementation of clinical practice guidelines
  • Obtain standard sets of data types to benchmark and improve care outcomes

Why participate

Hear about the benefits of participating in VIRTEX from SIR President Matthew S. Johnson, MD, FSIR.

"The SIR data registry is the way to grow IR and make sure interventional radiologists succeed."


Rajesh Shah, MD, FSIR, Director of Interventional Radiology, Associate Chief of Radiology, VA Palo Alto Health Care System
