The Pan Arab Interventional Radiology Society (PAIRS) was established in 2006, based on Beirut and aims to spread the knowledge about interventional radiology in the Arab world and region.
Interventional radiology is one of the most dynamic medical fields today. It is the true merge between medicine and high technology. Interventional radiologists are medical specialists with an in-depth training and foundation in diagnostic radiology including radiation safety, radiation physics, the biological effects of radiation and injury prevention.
Interventional radiologists are the pioneers in performing minimally invasive procedures replacing traditional surgery and providing new modes of treatments for multiple health conditions utilizing imaging guidance, yet maintaining the standards for safety and quality.
PAIRS aim to educate patients and other medical professionals in our region about interventional radiology and new high tech, cutting edge alternatives to patients. PAIRS also aims also to educate interventional radiologists about update in the specialty through multiple educational activities in addition to its annual scientific congress.
