2012 Annual Report - SIR Foundation

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENTIt has been a pleasure and a privilege to serve as SIR president during thisgroundbreaking year. The recognition value of our profession is at an all-time high, andthe future is even more promising. Interventional radiologists—now recognized as aprimary specialty with a unique skill set providing periprocedural care to patients—are trulymaking a difference in the world.Marshall E. Hicks, MD, FSIRThrough SIR and SIR Foundation, we have created a two-way learning enterprise thatbrings the best of American research and ingenuity to other countries and vice versa.Through the International Scholarship Program, we brought 12 representatives from ninecountries to the Annual Scientific Meeting, where the learning was energized, collaborativeand inspiring. We were able to hear firsthand from these scholars about IR advancesin countries as diverse as Chile, China, Mongolia and Spain, and they were able to taketheir new knowledge back home. Interventional radiology will grow best through strongnational organizations. By requiring that applicants be endorsed by their local societies,we demonstrated our respect for those organizations and also fostered networking andcollaboration among those societies. As Brian F. Stainken, MD, FSIR, notes in his testimoniallater in these pages, “The scholars coalesced into a community of their own—enhancing thepossibilities of a truly global IR community in the future.”INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGISTS—NOW RECOGNIZED AS MEMBERS OF A PRIMARY SPECIALTYWITH A UNIQUE SKILL SET PROVIDING PERIPROCEDURAL CARE TO PATIENTS—ARE TRULYMAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.In 2012, SIR played a vital role in sponsoring, sharing and facilitating the crucial researchthat allows us to make a difference in the world. The Society connected principalinvestigators with one another and—crucially—with peers in other specialties and the U.S.Food and Drug Administration, as we saw with the successful initiation of the PRESERVEstudy. Working hand-in-hand with the Society for Vascular Surgery to begin work ona study was a seminal achievement. Paving the way for such critical multidisciplinaryresearch is one way SIR helps our specialty gather the evidence needed to demonstratethe value and quality of care we provide to patients.This annual report not only looks backward, it looks forward. Our closing section, “Envisioningthe Future,” combines the Society’s new strategic plan, which will prioritize our efforts for thenext five years, with predictions for the future of our profession from two keen observers:Gary J. Becker, MD, FSIR, the inaugural editor of the Journal of Vascular and InterventionalRadiology (JVIR); and Ziv J Haskal, MD, FSIR, JVIR ’s current editor-in-chief. Given theopportunity to peer into their crystal balls, these two IR proponents share with us their visionfor the next decade in interventional radiology. Read on to see whether you agree.2Society of Interventional Radiology + Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation


MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTORWelcome to the 2012 Society of Interventional Radiology annual report. This hasbeen a year of truly notable accomplishments by SIR and its members. Becauseour members and supporters are so critical to the success of our efforts, wewanted to be sure your voices are heard. This report features first-person accountsfrom many of those who were responsible for or benefited from SIR activities andachievements in 2012, giving readers an opportunity to hear, with candor and clarity, thepositive impact SIR has on its members.Susan E. Sedory Holzer, MA, CAECertainly the signature achievement of 2012 was the approval of the Dual PrimaryCertificate in Interventional Radiology and Diagnostic Radiology. What a profoundlymeaningful and satisfying milestone—one that combines our members’ skills andpassions into a comprehensive new primary specialty. It would not have been possiblewithout the tireless efforts of so many of you.You’ll also read about some of our educational offerings and their direct effect on SIRmembers’ ability to treat their patients. As interventional radiologists increasingly assumeperiprocedural clinical care of patients, these educational opportunities will become moretimely and more crucial. We look forward to bringing them to you.AS WE CONTINUE TO PURSUE OUR MISSION TO IMPROVE PATIENT CARE THROUGH IMAGE-GUIDEDTHERAPY, SIR MEMBERS CAN COUNT ON THIS SOCIETY TO FACILITATE AND CELEBRATEYOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS.We report on the success of some advocacy initiatives, not least of which is the forgingof a frank dialogue with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that is paving the wayfor investigating devices, procedures and treatment options through registries thatmeasure real-world outcomes. At the most basic level, this is true health care reformthat puts patients first.We hope to continue that positive trend. The House Ways and Means HealthSubcommittee requested that SIR suggest ways to improve health care outcomesand payment reforms in the Medicare program, giving us a formal forum for candidfeedback. This opportunity reflects the growing recognition by Congress of the vital roleinterventional radiologists play in delivering safe, effective, efficient patient care.As we continue to pursue our mission to improve patient care through image-guidedtherapy, SIR members can count on this Society to continue to facilitate and celebrateyour accomplishments and those of the greater IR community. It is a genuine pleasureto serve you.2012 Annual Report 3


PREPARING THE FUTUREInterventional radiology is a unique combination of diagnostic imaging, image-guided intervention and procedural patient care—skill sets that fit well under the definition of a primary specialty. To achieve that status, the SIR/ABR Primary Certificate TaskForce worked for more than five years to develop a primary certificate proposal. Their efforts resulted in the American Board ofMedical Specialties’ 2012 approval of the Dual Primary Certificate in Interventional Radiology and Diagnostic Radiology.Dual Primary Certificate inInterventional Radiology andDiagnostic Radiology“At the highest level, the dual primarycertificate means that interventionalradiology trainees will learn at a consistentlyhigh standard that will ensure excellent carefor our patients. The training provides a fullskill set that can be applied across a broadrange of patients and pathologies. It reducesduplication and fragmentation and drives thedevelopment of better imaging sequences.Because of the Dual Primary Certificatein Interventional Radiology andDiagnostic Radiology, SIR no longerrepresents subspecialists but ratherpeople practicing a unique brandof medicine. The most importantbeneficiaries will be the patients weserve.” —John A. Kaufman, MD, MS,FSIR, Director, Dotter InterventionalInstitute; Frederick S. Keller Professorof Interventional Radiology, OregonHealth and Science University HospitalThe approval of the Dual Primary Certificate in Interventional Radiology and DiagnosticRadiology is a seminal event in the history of our field. It acknowledges IR as a distinctspecialty with a unique combination of competencies in imaging, image-guided interventionand peri-procedural patient care. Well-trained IR specialists will provide patients with thehighest level of care available today and in the future. Referring physicians can count onus to provide patients with ongoing, integrated care undergirded by consistent, high-qualitytraining that develops interventional radiologists’ unique skill set.—Marshall E. Hicks, MD, FSIR, SIR PresidentThank You for Your Effort!SIR thanks the Primary Certificate/Dual Certificate Task Force, past and current SIRofficers, Executive Council members, Society leaders, everyone who promoted orsupported it locally and all who contributed to this tremendous achievement. Thanksespecially to the members who have served on or contributed to the Primary Certificate/Dual Certificate Task Force since it was established by the Executive Council inNovember 2005.John A.

SIR President Marshall E. Hicks, MD, FSIR, and SIR Quality Improvement Committee Chair Joseph R. Steele, MD, FSIR, met withmembers of congress to speak on issues important to IR.United States. Most filter manufacturershave agreed to participate in the study.SIR and SVS are in the process of makinga final decision for a contract researchorganization that will complete protocoldevelopment and submit the study forinvestigational device exemption (IDE)study with HIPAA (Health InsurancePortability and Accountability Act)compliance. The contract researchorganization (CRO) will then launch andmanage the study operations. Studydirectors are Matthew S. Johnson, MD,FSIR, and David L. Gillespie MD, FACS.Other policy accomplishments:• SIR members stepped up to the platein the “Save Our Seat” campaign,1.6 MILLIONVIEWS ON SIRWEB.ORG IN 2012ensuring that interventional radiologywould continue to be a key part ofAMA decisions that affect coding andreimbursement.• SIR volunteers defended IR at theAMA CPT and RBRVS (RUC) panels,resulting in new practice expenseinputs for kyphoplasty and appropriatevaluations for new bundled codes incarotid angiography and thrombolysis.• At the SIR 2012 Annual ScientificMeeting, Agency for HealthcareResearch and Quality (AHRQ) DirectorCarolyn Clancy heard firsthand fromSIR members about the critical role IRplays in delivering quality patient care.• SIR provided a letter supporting effortsby the Brazilian Society of InterventionalRadiology (SoBRICE) and the BrazilianSociety of Gynecology to successfullyreverse a decision by the BrazilianNational Agency of Health to excludecoverage of uterine fibroid embolization(UFE) to treat fibroids.• SIR launched a grassroots effortto challenge proposed IntersocietalAccreditation Commission (IAC)vascular testing standards that ignoredIR expertise, leading to more than1,000 comments from SIR membersover a one-month span. As a result, IACrevised its standards to acknowledgeradiology board certification as beingsufficient for credentialing.• Advocacy by SIR members helpedreverse a decision by a New York statemalpractice insurance carrier, MLMIC, tovoid coverage of those who performedvertebral augmentation procedures suchas kyphoplasty. The carrier agreed tocontinue coverage as long as new interventionalradiologists can document theirfellowship training through continuingmedical education, such as IR workshops.• The House Ways and Means HealthSubcommittee requested that SIRsuggest ways to improve healthcare outcomes and efficiency in theMedicare program. This opportunityreflects the growing recognition byCongress of the vital role SIR can playin delivering safe, effective, efficientpatient care.6Society of Interventional Radiology + Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation


SCIENTIFIC EDUCATIONSIR education programs help to ensure the future of the profession and equip interventional radiologists with the knowledge,skills and abilities necessary to make a difference in the world. Consistent, high-quality training prepares both IR graduatesand advanced practitioners to provide comprehensive, integrated patient care that leverages the unique qualities of the fieldfor better outcomes. SIR Foundation grants and awards programs provide benefits to researchers at all levels of training andencourages further development of interventional radiology research.Specialized Training Through LEARNEducational interventions, formerlypart of everyday life in the clinicalsetting, have become increasinglyrare, especially for certain procedures.Other successes in education include:• SIR’s Annual Scientific MeetingWebcasts enabled interventionalradiologists in the United States andabroad to engage session moderatorsonline and to benefit from interactivedistance learning. To date, nearly 500individuals have viewed the Webcasts fora total of more than 3,000 hours.The Fall Webinar Series spotlighted IO,PAD, venous and other current diseasetopics as it gave participants at 108sites the opportunity to interact onlinewith experts.• SIR’s Learning Center became fully integratedwith the CME Gateway and, by extension,to the ABR, to provide memberswith automatic tracking of educational activitiesfor maintenance of certification. In2012, 1,449 people accessed the CMEGateway via the Learning Center and1,200 had their learning credits appliedto their ABR account for Maintenance ofCertification progress tracking, eliminatingthe need to self-report earned credits.• The Catheter Lysis of ThromboembolicStroke (CLOTS) course provided aSIR’s Lower Extremity Arterial RevascularizatioN (LEARN) course provided theright education for me at the right time. The access to thought leaders in IR and theopportunity to engage one-on-one with them—as well as the ability to see and try newdevices—was more helpful than any other skill-building offering I had tried. LEARNallowed me to focus on this one topic for three straight days. Its lasting benefit wasaccess to the expertise and support of the thought leaders, which I tapped for help with adifficult case soon after. Rather than having to refer the patient to another physician, theexperience fortified my confidence that I can—and should be—treating these patients.—Hirschel D. McGinnis, MD, Morton Hospital, a Steward Family Hospital;President, New England Society for Interventional Radiologyspecialized didactic lecture and handsonstroke training to 155 attendees.In its fourth year, CLOTS has becomea forum to highlight groundbreakingimaging techniques and up-to-the-minutetherapeutic procedures.• The second Y-90: Are YoU Ready?meeting provided requisite trainingand testing for official SIR validation of169 attendees as qualified to apply forAuthorized User (AU) status for intraarterialY-90 in the treatment of hepaticmalignancies. Y-90: Are YoU Ready?ensures interventional radiologists notonly meet—but exceed—AU qualifications.• The SIR Fellows Spring Practicum providedmore than 60 IR fellows from acrossthe United States with hands-on experienceand invaluable networking opportunitiesat a decisive time in their career.150 COMPANIESHAVE SUPPORTED SIR PROFESSIONAL AND TRAINEE PROGRAMSTHIS YEAR, INCLUDING 27 NEW EXHIBITORS FOR SIR 2012.• SIR worked to connect companies tophysicians, helping them achieve theirshared goals—research, education,patient care and better outcomes—byincluding them in hands-on workshopsat meetings, providing interactionwith trainees and including them asobservers at SIR Foundation researchconsensus panel meetings.• Hands-on designation for special learningopportunities in the SIR 2012 TechnicalExhibit Hall facilitated education andnetworking between companies andinterventional radiologists.2012 Annual Report 7


FOSTERING RESEARCHResearch is the heart and soul of interventional radiology, which attractsexperimental, entrepreneurial personalities and has achieved its most significantadvances through innovation. SIR promotes research by facilitating connectionsamong researchers with common interests, while SIR Foundation provides crucialfunding for their investigations.CCSVI: Innovations in IRtwo years ago, Gary P.Siskin, MD, FSIR, and I became“Aboutinterested in the role that chroniccerebrospinal venous insufficiency(CCSVI) might play in multiple sclerosis.SIR convened a working group onCCSVI to evaluate whether MS patientswho underwent jugular angioplastyexperienced relief from their symptomsand provided an invaluable service to thefield by issuing recommendations on howtheir colleagues should proceed. Thegroup was a wonderful forum for sharingand networking among professionals whowere already performing the procedure.Support from SIR lends legitimacy toresearchers’ efforts and helps ensurewe go about them in a way that informsand serves the greater good.” —MeridithJ. Englander, MD, Assistant Professor,Albany Medical CollegeConnecting Medical Students to IR“In the summer of 2012, I received anSIR Foundation medical student researchinternship and worked for eight weeks ata device company. As a former engineerat a large device manufacturer, I benefitedfrom the different perspective of a smallercompany with more of a think tankenvironment. I learned how involvementby doctors can be multi-faceted, but alsojust how many doctors are involved in theinventive process. I wanted to be moreinvolved, to understand the process andhow I could facilitate it. The internship fromSIR Foundation made it possible and I amgrateful for the opportunity.” —MassimoTarulli, 2012 SIR Foundation SummerMedical Student Research InternOther successes in research include:• SIR Foundation sponsored a researchconsensus panel on critical limbischemia led by Sanjay Misra, MD, FSIR,Mayo Clinic, College of Medicine, andmoderated by SIR Foundation Vice ChairStephen T. Kee, MD, FSIR.• SIR Foundation received 32 grantapplications and funded 12 grants.• SIR Foundation funded six Dr.Constantin Cope Medical Student SIRAnnual Scientific Meeting ResearchAwards and three Resident/FellowSIR Annual Scientific MeetingResearch Awards.

ENVISIONING THE FUTURE: MY VISION OF IR 10 YEARS FROM NOWIn 10 years, IR will finally be widely recognized as the specialty that has changed medicine on a grand scale—composed of unique, technical, sophisticated, comprehensive, disease-focused clinicians with specific skill andexpertise. Our research will have proven IR outcomes to be best, safest and most economical.Our cost effectiveness will stand out amidst the broad focus on health care expenditures, and health systems willreadily acknowledge the value and necessity of the IR clinicians. Interventional research will be widely populatedwith prospective and comparative studies. Using interventional oncology as an example, IR-led studies will havemoved us out of “salvage” and into first- and second-line therapy, while pipeline technologies will expand our horizons beyond what andhow we treat today.Our relentless and natural pursuit of innovation will have taught us how to succeed within a regulatory environment that creates silosand erects barriers to innovation. The continued efforts of SIR Foundation will drive research and support daily the ingenuity that definesus and brings widespread recognition to the specialty.The public will know what an interventional radiologist does and when to find one—that is, patients will view us as their doctors. Thespecialty will embrace more longitudinal care and equally house clinicians with surgical and medical backgrounds. More of us will moveinto outpatient settings. Many of us may subspecialize even further. And yet, future trainees around the world will enter the field viewingthemselves as primary doctors.—Ziv J Haskal, MD, FSIR, Editor-in-chief, Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology12 Society of Interventional Radiology + Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation


Scan this code to let SIR know your vision of the future of IR.Get the reader at www.gettag.mobi.Ten years from now, the Dual Primary Certificate in Interventional Radiology and Diagnostic Radiology will be theacknowledged norm; no more subspecialty VIR certificates will be awarded. As our increased range of offeringshelp to raise awareness of IR, we’ll enjoy better recognition by the public and payers, and payer directories will listinterventional radiologists separately. Doctors will refer patients directly to interventional radiologists. We’ll continueto see the field evolve in such areas as interventional oncology and women’s intervention, areas in which IRs willincreasingly subspecialize.There will be major developments in the IR suite around the world, emulating multimodality suites that incorporate multiple forms offeedback that is available on the fly.Interventional radiologists will be involved at both ends of disease care: more first-line treatment in early-stage disease as well as agreater role in palliation. We’ll be better able to treat early disease and perhaps surgery might not be necessary at all—not minimallyinvasive, but totally noninvasive.Interventional radiology will lead the way among radiology specialties in registries and acceleration of the path to best practices.I think the field will continue to innovate. Hopefully, noninvasive application of energies coupled with imaging will end up in the hands ofinterventional radiologists; this seems a natural path to becoming less invasive.—Gary J. Becker, MD, FSIR, Executive Director, American Board of Radiology;inaugural editor-in-chief, Journal of Vascular and Interventional RadiologyThe SIR Strategic PlanThe SIR Executive Council approved adoption of the 2013–2017 strategic plan, which will prioritize the next five years of Societyefforts around clinical care, outcomes data, revenue growth, building awareness of IR and innovation. SIR and SIR Foundation have aclear vision—that interventional radiology becomes the first choice for image-guided therapy—for health care professionals, consumers,legislators, reporters, regulators, private and federal funding sources and insurers.The plan charts the course for strategically building on our history and strengths, setting clear priorities and making a bold investment inour members. Our goals are to ensure that:1 Every interventional radiologist provides longitudinal care;2 We develop a standardized outcomes data infrastructure;3 The Society achieves a net revenue to provide the resources necessary to fund defined goals;4 Key decision makers understand what IR is, does and achieves; and5 Interventional radiologists lead the medical profession in innovation.2012 Annual Report 13


MESSAGE FROM THE TREASURERFinancial update on the SocietyBuilding off of increased investment inprogramming and initiatives in FY 2011,SIR continued to provide increasedmember value and services to itsmembers. With sustained growth ofinitiatives and educational activities, theorganization operated on a balancedbudget compared to a net operatingloss of $174,572 in 2011. The Society’snet operating loss in 2012 was $587.Revenues for the year were up 2.1% compared to 2011. Theincrease in revenue can be attributed to an increase in membershipdues received, increased revenue from product sales, and thecontinued growth of revenue streams from registration andcorporate support for educational programming. New nonduesrevenue streams in 2012 included SIR Press offerings suchas Updates in Interventional Radiology 2012, a successful fallWebinar series that touched on topics like renal artery stenosisand locoregional liver therapy, and digital sales of Annual ScientificMeeting and other educational meeting content. A couple moreproduct sales or registrations from these events would have put theSociety in the black in 2012.Expenses for the Society remained flat compared to 2011 andwere down $3,935 from the prior-year audited financials. TheSociety also continued its dedication to research by donating$200,000 in unrestricted funds to SIR Foundation to help fundthe grants program, research consensus panels (RCPs) andother Foundation projects that will benefit both organizations andadvance the field of IR through basic science and clinical research.Financial update on SIR FoundationAs with the Society, SIR Foundation activities in 2012 continuedto build off the programming growth of 2011. Increased cash flowfrom the pledge commitments of the corporate and membershipphase of the Discovery Campaign began to flow into theorganization and fund grant, research and clinical programs. Totalcash received and new commitments to the Discovery Campaigntotaled $884,610 in 2012. This was aided by revenue raisedduring the 2nd annual Foundation Gala, and increased AnnualFund contributions from members, which brought in an additional$185,860 during the year.In FY 2012, the Foundation awarded and paid $302,000 in variousgrant categories and awards. The Foundation also continued to fundthe IO Registry project and an RCP on the management of criticallimb ischemia. The Foundation also launched a new medical studentinternship program in 2012 that introduced medical students early intheir studies to IR research and medical device development.In order to continue to fund these programs at this level, theFoundation must continue to receive all money pledged duringthe membership phase of the Discovery Campaign, and receiveincreased Annual Fund contributions from SIR members.During summer 2012, the SIR Executive Council and SIRFoundation board of directors approved a strategic plan for thenext five years that will align the missions and resources of bothorganizations to meet member needs. SIR and SIR Foundationwill continue to invest in strategic plan goals that will createmultiple avenues for advancing patient care and that will supportIR. These goals will include leading the medical profession ininnovation, increasing awareness of IR through outreach to keydecision-makers (policy/public) and our colleagues around theworld, develop a standardized outcomes data infrastructure tosupport the increasing demands of evidence-based medicinerequirements, expand physician participation in longitudinal care,and increase the revenue streams of both organizations so wecan successfully meet these goals.The Society and Foundation will be tackling these significantinitiatives over the next five years. In 2013, the organizationwill invest in the infrastructure that will allow the Society toaddress these goals successfully and transform how we supportand advance the specialty. I am confident that SIR and SIRFoundation are in a position to continue to invest in IR and addressmembership needs. This could not be achieved without the supportof our corporate partners, our loyal members, our committedmember volunteers, and our dedicated staff who invest so much oftheir time and energy to the success of our specialty every day.Sincerely,Charles E. Ray Jr., MD, PhD, FSIR14 Society of Interventional Radiology + Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation
