Society of Interventional Radiology Advances Global Definition of Specialty, Benefits Patients
The Society of Interventional Radiology, with the support of 41 international societies representing 10,000 interventional radiology doctors, has issued the first global statement defining interventional radiology-one designed to benefit medical treatment for individuals. The statement addresses the evolution, impact and future direction of this minimally invasive specialty, emphasizing the worldwide availability of this specialized medical care. The statement, the result of more than two years of collaborative work, is being co-published in August as a "Special Communications" in SIR's Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology and in the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe's journal.

JVIR Endorses CONSORT Statement
JVIR endorses the CONSORT (Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials) Statement. The CONSORT Statement contains criteria developed to improve the quality of published reports of randomized clinical trials. The current criteria consist of a 22-item checklist that pertains to the various sections of a report of a clinical trial (Title, Abstract, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion).
Beginning Oct. 1, when submitting a manuscript reporting a randomized controlled trial, authors are strongly encouraged to upload the CONSORT criteria checklist and flow diagram and to attach the completed checklist to their submission. These elements will not be mandatory initially. For more information on the CONSORT Statement and templates for the checklist and flowchart diagram, please visit www.consort-statement.org/home.
