VENUE Washington State Convention Center

Join us for another year at SIR 2020, where we are both exhibiting and supporting multiple hands-on workshops!  

The Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) is a nonprofit, professional medical society representing more than 8,000 practicing interventional radiology physicians, trainees, medical students, scientists and clinical associates. The society’s core purpose and mission is to work with its members to deliver patient-centered care through image-guided therapy.

Every year we bring you cutting edge technology that can help optimize IR procedure performance. Plan your visit to include us to find out how you can acquire and retain procedure skills and enhance proficiency across a wide range of IR disciplines utilizing our high-fidelity endovascular simulation solutions.

On March 6 SIR made the decision to cancel SIR. Let us know if you'd like to schedule a remote demo or talk to our sales team.


Simulation in IR (IR March Madness Tournament)

This session is geared toward a high fidelity simulation experience and competition culminating in a final head-to-head competition.

The Halstead Apprentice model of "See one, Do one, Teach one" is no longer the most common method of healthcare and medical education. In order to promote active learning, simulated procedures, simulation based team training and augmented reality technologies will assist in filling the educational gap.

Tuesday, March 31: 8:30am - 10:00am

Room: 6C, Washington State Convention Center
