2017 CARDIOVASCULAR & INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF EUROPE (CIRSE) CONGRESS
Bella Center CopenhagenCopenhagen, DENMARK Visit the Venue to read more
In September 2016, we returned to the buzzing city of Barcelona for another successful CIRSE congress. Alongside a fantastic 4.5 days of innovative education and science, we are happy to announce that with over 6,700 international delegates, CIRSE 2016 was our best attended annual congress so far!
We also had great feedback from our four debuting formats: the new Super Tuesday session aimed to emphasise stand-out abstracts in IR. The session covered a broad range of topics, one of which was a paper on the 10-year results of the EMMY Trial, a randomised trial comparing the clinical outcome between uterine artery embolisation and hysterectomy. The new Posters on Stage session likewise provided the opportunity for researchers to showcase their work. This was organised in the middle of the Technical Exhibition, kicking off animated discussion in an informal setting. During the new Expert Round Table and Expert Case Discussion sessions, there was great interdisciplinary interaction between the speakers and the audience.
The CIRSE and IDEAS 2017 Programme Committees are in process of designing the programme for next year. The Abstract submission deadline has been set for February 13 and the Preliminary Programme will be published in February 2017. For now, you can look forward to the following highlights …
A comprehensive endovascular programme
As endovascular therapies are such a large focus of the congress, the programme will again contain of three distinct categories: arterial, venous and aortic interventions; the latter covered in the Interdisciplinary Endovascular Aortic Symposium (IDEAS), a parallel multidisciplinary EVAR/TEVAR programme which will run from Sunday to Tuesday. CIRSE 2017 will see sessions covering IVC filters, venous stenting, drug-eluting technology and closure devices plus many more exciting topics in the arterial and venous tracks.
Oncology, pain and non-vascular IR
As always, CIRSE endeavours to offer delegates a full and wide-ranging educational programme. Next year’s congress will feature sessions on bone therapies, interventional oncology and renal therapies to name a few. There will also be a focus on clinical practice, with anaesthesia, sedation and analgesia, which are increasingly important topics in IR, as well as ample attention given to the subject of patient management.
Hands on Device Training
As learning about the latest medical devices and equipment is an integral part of the congress experience, CIRSE 2017 has come up with a new training format called Hands on Device Trainings. This new format will replace the Hands on Workshops and be more device-orientated, with clearer learning objectives and guidelines.
Are you ready (for the new radiation safety directive)?
Since the creation of our Radiation Protection Subcommittee and the Radiation Protection Pavilion (RPP) at CIRSE, it has been one of CIRSE’s key initiatives to provide advice and education on radiation protection for those working in the medical field and their patients. With new radiation protection legislation on the way, it will become indispensable to stay ahead of the game and this topic will therefore be a core theme of CIRSE 2017, featuring the Radiation Protection Pavilion, a Hot Topic Symposium and dedicated sessions.
For CIRSE 2017, we will be heading north to the Danish capital of Copenhagen. Compact in size yet internationally well connected and bursting with culture, contemporary art and culinary excellence, the city is an ideal backdrop to deliver cutting-edge science from global IR experts. Our 32nd congress will take place in the magnificent Bella Center, one of Scandinavia’s largest conference centres, located centrally in the new part of Copenhagen, Ørestad. It has its own metro stop on the M1 line, which is just a few stations away from the airport and takes you directly to the city centre in less than 10 minutes. There are also many hotels in the immediate vicinity.
Stay tuned for more details on the scientific programme and travel information. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Copenhagen!
