The Society of Interventional Radiology Resident Fellow and Student Section (SIR RFS) is dedicated to supporting IR trainees' clinical knowledge by providing information on landmark clinical trials transforming the field of IR.

We have compiled a spreadsheet that contains links to short summaries and primers for these significant research studies. Please explore the Table of Contents below to locate articles by topic.

Clinical Trial Summaries

Clinical trial summaries are one-page documents summarizing the major takeaways of transformative clinical trials in IR. These are essentially truncated versions of the Journal Primers. These summaries are written by medical students nationwide and reviewed for publication by IR attending physicians on an ongoing basis. Interested in helping out?

Journal Primers

Journal primers are short PowerPoint presentations created by attending physicians, fellows, residents, and medical students outlining the most salient points from IR research that impacted the field as it is practiced today. This project is fueled by the Resident, Fellow, and Student (RFS) Journal Primer Team.
