SPIR 10th International Meeting
September 26 - 28, 2022  Galway, Ireland


As pediatric interventionalists we encounter a spectrum of procedural complexity in the growing child. This requires us to be innovative and creative about procedural techniques and devices, in a world focused on adult intervention. Therapies targeted to genetic defects and mutations have accelerated in recent years. It is with this perspective, that the SPIR 2022 annual meeting will highlight advances in image guided interventions in children. This meeting will have scientific sessions showcasing the latest pediatric IR research. See below for the innovative topics that will be featured.

Contrast Enhanced US in IR providing the audience with an overview of CEUS use in IR including, the development of a CEUS program, general applications in IR and future research potential.

Controversies Debate a lively session with debates on some controversial aspects of pediatric IR practice and techniques.

Precision Oncology/Vascular Anomalies targeted medical therapies, biopsy challenges for molecular profiling, optoacoustic imaging for vascular anomalies and therapeutic options such as cryoablation and Yttrium 90.

How I do it - Guidance from the Experts complex pediatric IR topics from practice elements to procedural techniques.



Innovative Imaging Techniques/Devices elastography, fusion imaging and navigation, HoloLens technology, AI and 3D printing, laser ablation and high- frequency focused US.

Education Simulation/Grant Writing innovative ways to acquire pediatric IR skills including simulation workshops, phantom creation and HoloLens technology. Tips for successful grant writing will be included. 

Lymphatic Interventions percutaneous techniques for lymphatic conduction disorders, chylothorax, plastic bronchitis, surgical considerations.



Neurointerventions/Thyroid occipital puncture for therapeutic delivery, pain interventions, therapeutic techniques for intra-cranial hypertension, vascular malformation intervention, thyroid lesion localization and ablation.

Venous Interventions/Vascular Access portmesenteric interventions, complex venous recanalization, percutaneous dialysis creation and complex vascular access scenarios.

Global Outreach in IR highlighting the important contributions pediatric IR is making to global health.
