The Clinical Research and Registries Division supports Research Consensus Panel (RCP) meetings to discuss critical research areas and determine how the priority topic can be further developed. The RCP is a one day meeting, which is held twice per year. After SIR Foundation Leadership selects a current critical topic in IR, the lead investigator coordinates a panel of multi-disciplinary subject matter experts. Each panelist presents on a specific subtopic and discusses future research needs. - See more at: http://test.sirfoundation.org/clinical-research2/clinical-research3/research-consensus-panel/#sthash.61FzATgR.dpufReResearch PrioritiesSummer

The list of top research priorities will be the focus of our upcoming research meetings and projects. 
Work is underway on the proceedings paper from SIR Foundation’s Research Consensus Panel (RCP) on Geniculate Artery Embolization, held Jan. 28-29 in a virtual format due to COVID-19. J.David Prologo, MD, FSIR, from Emory University, led the meeting of subject matter experts from IR, osteroarthritis management, surgery, treatment, and other areas. The panel discussed critical topics in geniculate artery embolization research that will inform the proceedings paper Dr. Prologo will submit to the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (JVIR).

Chronic Venous Thrombosis: Relief with Adjunctive Catheter-Directed Therapy (C-TRACT)

The NIH-sponsored Chronic Venous Thrombosis: Relief with Adjunctive Catheter-Directed Therapy (C-TRACT) study is a multicenter, randomized trial lead by Suresh Vedantham, MD, FSIR. The goal of this study is to determine if the use of image-guided, endovascular therapy effectively reduces post-thrombotic syndrome disease severity in patients with disabling iliac-obstructive post-thrombotic syndrome. This study is planning to enroll approximately 374 subjects at 20-40 clinical centers. SIR Foundation encourages SIR members to serve as site investigators or refer patients to sits.
