BSIR Annual Scientific Meeting 2020
About This Annual Scientific Meeting
The BSIR Annual Scientific Meeting is the biggest interventional radiology conference in the United Kingdom. Since 1988, it has become the meeting place for those interested in interventional radiology to come together to share their knowledge, experience and expertise.
Sadly, due to the Covid pandemic we are unable to meet in person this year. However the new virtual platform does provide other exciting opportunities. This year, delegates will be able to participate in the programme from the comfort of their homes or departments without the need to travel. Why not book a meeting venue in your departments and arrange for staff to come together with your local industry representatives for the industry webinars?
The programme is packed with a range of fascinating lectures from leaders in the field , both nationally and internationally, sessions from the special interest groups (IOUK, PAEDS IR UK), cutting edge developments in lymphatic intervention and interventional oncology, trauma and vascular intervention and trial updates. There will be expert discussion of complex cases, industry webinars and videos; and scientific presentations including a session on Covid.
There will be CPD points available for participation as always. Please do also join in the fun with the daily quiz and cheer on the teams you are supporting. We are hoping to see more delegates than ever this year registering for the meeting, enjoying the educational content and supporting our industry partners.
We look forward to welcoming you to BSIR 2020!
Dr Lakshmi Ratnam
Chair of Scientific Programme Committee
