NewsGuard 100/100 Score

The Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) announced the addition of 18 Fellows to the Fairfax, Virginia-based, national organization's roster during SIR's 38th Annual Scientific Meeting, held April 13 in New Orleans. This honor, achieved by fewer than 10 percent of SIR membership, goes to members who have demonstrated excellence in research and published works or teaching and leadership within the field of interventional radiology and/or the society.

"Election as a Fellow is one of the Society of Interventional Radiology's highest honors and the direct result of peer recognition," said SIR President Scott C. Goodwin, M.D., FSIR, who represents the national society of nearly 5,000 doctors, scientists and allied health professionals dedicated to improving health care through minimally invasive treatments. "SIR Fellows play key roles in the society. They have made-and continue to make-seminal contributions to the specialty that have advanced the science and technology of the field," said Goodwin, who is the Hasso Brothers professor and chair of the department of radiological sciences at the University of California, Irvine.
