Dear AuntMinnie member,

In this edition of the Interventional Radiology Insider, we’re featuring a new study that deemed thermal ablation to be comparable to surgical resection in colorectal cancer patients with small metastases.

The results were hailed by the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR), which described the study as “tremendous news” for patients around the world. Click here for our coverage.

In other interventional radiology news, genicular artery embolization was found to be effective for reducing pain for up to two years in patients with mild-to-moderate osteoarthritis. And an international team of researchers reported that faster intervention with endovascular thrombectomy for large vessel occlusion stroke improves patient-reported quality of life outcomes.

We reported on an interventional radiologist in Wyoming who has been forced off the state’s board of medicine for openly supporting a bill that bans transgender treatments and surgeries on minors and covered a study that suggests how ChatGPT-4 could provide an alternative to manual methods of extracting details from reports on thrombectomy procedures in stroke patients.

See below for a full list of recent interventional radiology content.
