Siemens Medical pledges $200,000 to SIR Foundation's Discovery Campaign

Corporate pledge of $200,000 supports major fund-raising initiative to expand minimally invasive medicine into new areas of discovery

The Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation's Discovery Campaign, which seeks to further the growth of minimally invasive medicine into new areas of discovery, announced a major corporate pledge to that initiative. Siemens Medical Solutions, a provider of imaging and laboratory diagnostic equipment and information technology and management consulting and services to health care customers, pledged $200,000, as a "Pioneer" Supporter.

"The impact that corporate support at this level has on the future of the specialty is immense," said Gordon McLennan, M.D., FSIR, chair of the SIR Foundation board of directors. "The funding will be used to support grants, research consensus panels, registries, clinical trials and educational programming. Support of this kind sends a clear message about investing in the future of interventional radiology, a truly trailblazing specialty," noted McLennan, an interventional radiologist with the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. "We thank Siemens Medical Solutions for coming forward to support us on this venture," he noted.

"We are dedicated to supporting educational and research initiatives and developing technologies to advance image-guided therapies," noted Claus Grill, vice president of Siemens Medical Solutions, USA Inc., based in Malvern, Pa.
