Warren Krackov, MD, FSIR | Society of Interventional Radiology

It’s kind of been a roller coaster ride. We’re all excited about everything that was gong to happen with the annual meeting … And then at the beginning of the year we started to get reports and that’s when we started saying, “What are we going to do? How is this going to happen?”
—Constantino S. Peña, MD, FSIR

Warren Krackov, MD, FSIR, speaks with Constantino S. Peña, MD, FSIR, chair of the Society of Interventional Radiology 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting, about the decision to cancel the in-person meeting, shift to a virtual annual meeting, the role of the COVID-19 pandemic in the decision, and the evolution of education for medical professionals.
