CIRSE 2019

7 - 10 September 2019
09:00 - 18:00
Barcelona, Spain
Centre Convencions Internacional de Barcelona (CCIB)
RPP 8 in the Radiation Protection Pavilion

The CIRSE Annual Congress is the biggest and most longstanding interventional congress in Europe. Since its beginning in 1985 it has become the leading platform for medical professionals with an interest and expertise in interventional radiology wishing to increase and share their knowledge on image-guided minimally invasive therapies.

Every year we bring you cutting edge technology that can help optimize procedure performance. Join us and see how health systems and medical industry around the world use the Mentice high-fidelity endovascular training solutions to meet and enhance their proficiency across a wide range of endovascular disciplines.


Hands-On Training Procedures

Discover our suite of over 20 endovascular intervention procedures

Our Mentice VIST® Lab will be there - covering over 20 procedures across 6 disciplines - from head to toe!

  • Cardiology
  • Electrophysiology
  • Neuroradiology
  • Radiology
  • Trauma
  • Vascular

Some of the procedures available for you to train on:
  • Prostatic Artery Embolization
  • Transarterial Embolization
  • Uterine Artery Embolization
  • Below-the-Knee Intervention
  • Peripheral Angiography
  • Vascular Trauma Management

Radiation Safety

Interventional radiologists and their patients face particular health risks when exposed to high levels of radiation in daily practice. Our Radiation Safety software increases the value of procedural training by adding a hands-on ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable) component to all of our training modules.

Featured Talk at the Radiation Protection Pavilion

Topic: Image Fusion/Confusion: Best Practices   

Our featured talk will be presented by Professor Lars Lönn. Lars will be sharing his tips and tricks for fusion imaging related to Radiation Safety.

  • Date: Sunday, September 8
  • Time: 11:15 - 11:30
  • Venue: The Radiation Protection Pavilion



Featured Hands-On Sessions

Mentice simulators have again been chosen to power CIRSE's simulation gallery. Participants will have the opportunity to practice the below procedures under the guidance of a technician and/or proctor.

  • SIM 1: Prostatic artery embolisation: basics, current role and future perspectives (advanced level)
    Saturday, September 7, 08:30 - 13:50

  • SIM 2: Basic principles of mechanical thrombectomy in ischaemic stroke (advanced level)
    Sunday, September 8, 08:30 - 13:50

  • SIM 3: Emergency embolisation in trauma: state of the art (intermediate level)
    Monday, September 9, 08:30 - 13:50
  • SIM 4: Peripheral artery disease: angioplasty and stenting (core level)
    Tuesday, September 10, 08:30 - 13:50

Simulator gallery sessions for students will start from 15:00 - 16:00 each day.
