A joint project of the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe and the European Society of Radiology addresses some key points of diagnosis and referral to interventional radiology within the radiology department.

Two of the most influential radiology societies in Europe join forces to bring "From Diagnosis to Intervention," an opportunity for diagnostic radiologists to update themselves on some of the treatments and procedures that interventional radiology currently has to offer.

The rapid progress of interventional radiology has enabled its minimally invasive treatments to replace many surgical procedures. This refresher indicates the most prevalent criteria that should alert the diagnostic radiologist to involve his or her colleagues from the interventional radiology department in treatment discussions.

Studies have shown that many more patients could benefit from interventional radiology thanks to the less invasive nature of the procedures, which offer shorter hospital stays; decreased risk, pain, and recovery times; and a reduced requirement of general anesthesia.

"From Diagnosis to Intervention" is a step on the road to developing more knowledge and better communication, and we hope very much that this collaboration between ESR and CIRSE will produce an impact on all our colleagues in the radiology department.

The exhibition will be open throughout ECR 2009, with catering facilities nearby. Whether you simply drop by for a few minutes between sessions or peruse at your leisure, you will most certainly benefit from this one-stop shop of the most prevalent issues in diagnostic and interventional radiology.

CIRSE, the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe wishes to thank the European Society of Radiology for this exclusive opportunity of collaboration.

From Diagnosis to Intervention Open daily from 10:00 to 18:00
