Matthew R. Callstrom, MD, PhD, from Mayo Clinic, led an SIR Foundation Research Consensus Panel (RCP) on Musculoskeletal Interventional Oncology Interventions in December 2018. International, multi-disciplinary experts gathered to discuss current research gaps and to prioritize the most critical topic for further development. Representatives from academia, government, and industry attended to contribute to the discussion. A prioritized research agenda will be published as a proceedings paper in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (JVIR).
