IR is a therapeutic field and “we want to focus on clinical care”


Christoph Binkert (Winterthur, Switzerland) and current president of the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE) tells Interventional News about the three-fold focus and goals for interventional radiology (IR) in Europe, as defined by the society: clinical care; training and quality standards.

Clinical care requires infrastructure, time, dedicated staff and beds. But the first step, he says, “is to simply talk to your patient before and after the procedure. Everybody can do that.”
