Conference Summary

The seminar will bring together The University of Chicago Medicine Department of Radiology, the Hong Kong College of Radiologists, and Departments of Radiology from China, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan to explore local differences in factors that affect the performance of Interventional Radiology and Interventional Neuroradiology procedures in order to implement an effective quality program that addresses issues related to Quality and Patient Safety. We look to draw attention to the differences in local practice guidelines to performing procedures; to share some of the lessons learned by the different hospitals; and to support hospitals in the development of protocols, credentialing standards and other processes to ensure the safety of Interventional Radiology procedures. There will also be a session of Extreme IR where difficult cases are described and novel approaches discussed.
