Sustainability in interventional radiology: are we doing enough to save the environment?


"As medical doctors we all have the obligation to think about the wellbeing of our patients, our future patients and our world. The biggest challenge we are currently facing is the healing of our planet. This paper is a wake-up call and a must read to make us aware how we can contribute by reducing the medical waste from our IR work."

Jim Reekers, CVIR Endovascular Editor-in-Chief, January 2023
