Welcome to Seminar for Interventional Radiology in Asia-Pacific (SIRAP web 2021)
Dear colleagues and friends,
It is our great honor and pleasure to inform you that “The Seminar for Interventional Radiology in Asia-Pacific (SIRAP)” will be held as a virtual meeting from Osaka, Japan on May 22nd (Sat), 2021.
The SIRAP was originally a 3 days program of formal lectures and hands-on seminars using animal models and simulators. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it became difficult to have face-to-face lectures and hands-on seminars in this year. However, we believe that international communication is important in the development of our IR community. Therefore, we, Japanese Society of Interventional Radiology (JSIR), decided to have webbased online seminar, namely, SIRAP-Web seminar.
In this seminar we will have on-line lectures, and case discussions those focus on interventional radiology for Portal Hypertension including B-RTO, TIPS, and PTO. Especially, case discussions will be delivered by collaborating with Asia Pacific Society of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology (APSCVIR). We believe SIRAP-Web seminar will contribute to the education and communication for all young IRs in Asian-Pacific region.
For the success of our challenge, your participation is important. Please join us and enjoy this event. We look forward to the participation of many of you in SIRAP-Web seminar 2021 !
