Show Notes

At the very beginning of the pandemic, there was a big outpouring of support through social media outlets and other avenues online between training programs throughout the country. So it was kind of almost a national level of collaboration for continuing access to training in a way.  It will be good to see how we continue to use it in the coming year.   —Jason Fisher, MD

In a special year-end review, Warren Krackov, MD, FSIR, and the Kinked Wire team (Editor Jaimin Shah, MD; Production Manager Jason Fisher, MD; and SIR Director of Publications Brian Haefs) discuss the top stories impacting interventional radiology in 2020:

  • Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Racial inequity and health care disparities
  • Wellness and burnout
  • Virtual SIR 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting
  • And more

The team concludes with a look ahead to what may come in 2021.
