Society of Interventional Radiology Launches New Brand Reinforcing Commitment to Develop New Treatments

New branding designed to enhance medical practice and improve standard of patient care through image-guided therapies

January 15, 2015 — The Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) unveiled a new brand for the society and its research organization, the SIR Foundation. The new logos for both organizations convey the limitless possibilities of image-guided therapies to solve the toughest medical problems. SIR’s new tagline, “The vision to heal,” reflects the innovative, patient-driven care that board-certified interventional radiologists deliver through methods that result in less risk, less pain and shorter recovery time than traditional surgery.

“Interventional radiology showcases the very best of today’s medicine, bringing together clinical insight, procedural expertise and advanced image-guided technology to deliver high-quality patient care,” said SIR President James B. Spies, M.D., MPH, FSIR. “Our efforts reinforce how SIR continues to support our members as they deliver outstanding clinical care and how we will continue to do so in the years to come,” added Spies.

With the renewed focus on cost-effective, patient-driven care in the evolving healthcare landscape, SIR and SIR Foundation actively reaffirm interventional radiology’s role as part of the greater care team. Through the new brand, the society strengthens its identity, promoting the value that interventional radiology delivers — the same value being called for in medicine: better outcomes, less burden on the patient and innovative use of technology with clear patient benefit, noted Spies.

“Our new brand helps us to better communicate the valuable and unique role that interventional radiology has in delivering comprehensive clinical care,” said SIR Executive Director Susan E. Sedory Holzer, M.A., CAE. “By listening to our members, this new framework also reflects the passion and dedication members have for the specialty and, more importantly, high-quality care,” added Holzer.
