CVIR paper - Dr Warren Clements

IRSA would like to congratulate Dr Warren Clements, from The Alfred Hospital, Melbourne, on his paper accepted for publication in CVIR, “Establishing a Platform for Interest and Education in Interventional Radiology Amongst Radiology Trainees”.

The IRSA registrar’s conference has been a long standing event run by IRSA in promoting the awareness of IR and education of IR to radiology registrars and fellows. In 2018 Dr Warren Clements (Alfred Health), Dr Julian Nguyen (Western Health) and Dr Timothy Joseph (Alfred Health) were the conference organisers and the event was held at the Alfred Hospital, Melbourne. A survey of the participants was performed to assess the usefulness and relevance of the course to radiology registrars.

CIRSE launch new online Library

CIRSE library

CIRSE have announced the launch of the new CIRSE Library at library.cirse.org.This online resource of CIRSE’s congress recordings (webcasts, posters, presentations from CIRSE, ECIO, GEST Europe / ET and IROS events) will replace ESIR online.

The CIRSE Library is open to all users without the need to log in until after CIRSE 2018. After this date the Library will become subscription based. IRSA members as affiliated CIRSE members will receive the CIRSE Library subscription free of charge as

part of their member benefits. 

The new Library provides a dynamic platform showcasing CIRSE’s archive of congress material, and special attention has been paid to improving the search and filter function.  Filter options have been streamlined and users can for example search specifically for presentations which have been selected as suitable for EBIR preparation. The popular Topic Packages are presented in a new layout to ensure contents are optimally displayed. All new webcast recordings are in HD quality and

include video of the speaker, which adds substantially to the online viewing experience.
