With education documentation becoming a way of life and the budget constraints facing many hospitals and institutions, in conjunction with the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) and the Association for Radiologic & Imaging Nursing (ARIN), AVIR strives to build an education program that meets and exceeds the expectations of our attendees.

The AVIR Annual Scientific Meeting continues to provide an excellent venue for participation and marketing for our corporate sponsors.

ABOUT US  The Association of Vascular and Interventional Radiographers (AVIR) is a nonprofit, national organization of Radiologic Technologists and allied health professional deeply committed to improving health and the quality of life through the practice of vascular and interventional radiology, while providing strong leadership and the development of superior education for our members.

OUR MISSION is to grow, advance, and continue education in the area of vascular and interventional radiology and to promote professional growth and resources for AVIR members throughout the medical community.
The AVIR is comprised of department managers, chief technologists, directors and administrators as well as interventional radiographers and nurses.
