The 17th annual scientific meeting of the Asia Pacific Society of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology (APSCVIR) took place from April 12-15 in Seoul, Korea. Several representatives of CIRSE travelled to Seoul to present, meet, and participate in the four days of discussion and exchange on IR.
APSCVIR is an international organization bringing together interventional radiologists from across the Asia Pacific region. A collaborative effort between 16 organized members, the society was formed in 1991 to unite IRs from around the region and connect with other societies, such as CIRSE, from around the globe.
CVIR Editor-in-Chief Prof. Klaus Hausegger, CVIR’s embolization section editor Prof. Tiago Bilhim, and Prof. Robert Morgan, one of CIRSE’s former presidents, were all present in Seoul to participate in a CVIR writing symposium, an “APSCVIR meets CIRSE” session, and more.
