Dear Colleagues!

gaudi.jpgCIRSE is proud of its status as a European and global IR society, with members coming from all 5 continents. CIRSE’s involvement in many IR projects around the world lays a firm foundation for a strong and dynamic annual meeting. In staging CIRSE 2013, our intention is to further globalise both faculty and audience, helping to reaffirm our meeting’s position as a major platform for interventional radiology on a global scale.

CIRSE 2012 proved another great success, and the Scientific Programme Committee is hard at work to make sure CIRSE 2013 lives up to this standard. Feedback and evaluation forms from the meeting in Lisbon have been analysed and used to refine the scientific and educational menu we will be offering in Barcelona.

With the Preliminary Programme, we hope to provide you with a useful overview of the sessions being planned. You will find new, cutting-edge topics have been added and more established sessions have been improved based on your feedback. We hope it meets your expectations!

Programme highlights include:

  • Evidence Forums – new sessions devoted to evidence-based medicine. Forum topics will include the management of SFA and BTK peripheral vascular disease as well as HCC and colorectal metastases.
  • Hot Topic Symposia – dynamic sessions on two contemporary topics - interventional oncology in lung cancer and IR stroke management.
  • Controversy Sessions – lively debates covering the management of aortic disease, endoleaks, peripheral vascular interventions and portal hypertension.
  • Amazing Interventions – a new and exciting group of sessions featuring presentations on some of IRs most unusual cases by leading figures in the field.
  • Hands-on Workshops – emphasis will, once again, be placed on the ever-popular Hands-on Workshops and a new session dedicated to renal denervation will be introduced.


Last year’s congress saw the introduction of two major new features, the CIRSE digital App and the live stream from the main auditorium. The App proved a useful tool for congress attendees and was downloaded over 2,000 times and over 500 unique users tuned into the live stream. Due to their clear popularity, both the CIRSE App and the live stream will also feature at CIRSE 2013.

Abstract submissions have remained high over the past few years with 1,230 abstracts submitted for CIRSE 2012. We encourage you to make the most of the opportunity to showcase your scientific achievements by submitting your abstracts to the CIRSE Office by February 15, 2013.

The CIRSE Annual Meeting is now the largest IR congress in the world, drawing an attendance of over 6,000 delegates annually. Finding a congress centre that can accommodate this large number of attendees can, therefore, be a challenge. Fortunately, the Barcelona International Convention Centre fulfils all of our space criteria and we are delighted to have secured it for our congress. Barcelona is also a city that needs no introduction, providing the ideal infrastructure for large congresses as well as many other services catering to visitors.

With all this in mind, we cordially invite you to join us for the 28th Annual CIRSE Congress, which will take place in the cosmopolitan and inspirational city of Barcelona, Spain from 14 - 18 September, 2013.

We look forward to seeing you there!

A Special Welcome from our Local Host Committee

It is a great honour and special pleasure for us to be part of the organisation for the upcoming CIRSE 2013 in Barcelona. This is an exciting event for interventional radiologists in Spain, who are seeing a growing public interest in minimally invasive image-guided therapies.

There are big centres located in all the large cities in Spain, promoting investigation and development in several areas, including interventional oncology. Vascular interventions are also increasing, especially distal revascularisation, promoted by the development of diabetic foot units, which are co-ordinated by IRs and endocrinologists. Varicose vein treatment is rapidly evolving, and direct referral of patients from the primary care physicians is starting to increase our workload. Multidisciplinary teamwork and hybrid IR suites are evolving and developing into aortic units composed of interventional radiologists and cardiovascular surgeons to treat aortic aneurysms.

This is all of particular interest in light of the challenging economic situation in Europe, and our national IR society, SERVEI, is convinced that Interventional Radiology has a major role to play in maintaining and promoting the efficacy and efficiency of medical resources. Hosting the CIRSE Annual Meeting is an opportunity to increase the visibility of Interventional Radiology to our political leaders, our colleagues from other medical disciplines and the public, highlighting the major role that Interventional Radiology can play in modern medicine and the great benefits that can be obtained from minimally invasive image-guided therapies.
