The Singapore General Hospital IASIOS Accreditation – CVIR Article

“Accreditation in Interventional Radiology: Why it Matters and Why we Sought IASIOS Certification” (CVIR 2022) Sonam Taschi, Sivanathan Chandramohan, Andreas Adam & Bien Soo Tan.

Read the editorial about why the Singapore General Hospital became one of the first hospitals in the world to become IASIOS Accredited.

“Although IASIOS focuses on IO at Singapore General Hospital (SGH), it is regarded as a framework that can be adapted and expanded to the rest of the IR service. Throughout the process of IASIOS certification, whenever areas, where the IO service could be improved, were identified, the necessary changes were applied to the rest of the IR service. Thus, the accreditation journey enabled a process of improvement across the whole of IR”

Prof. Laura Crocetti, IASIOS Committee member, in Interventional News!

“IASIOS accreditation is a way of demonstrating first to us and then to the global community that the interventional oncology service we provide is of high quality and meets rigorous international standards. It helps to improve the whole process of patient care and treatment and is specifically designed for medical facilities offering interventional oncology. Accreditation already exists for other specialities or services, and it is extremely important to have it already up and running for interventional oncology.”.Click on the image below to read more.

The Standards of Quality Assurance in IO in the Press

IASIOS is pleased that the Standards of Quality Assurance in IO were mentioned in the newly published study by Helmberger et al. (2020):

“While it was outside of the scope of the study to improve the necessary infrastructure for interventional radiology to follow up on their patients, this study provides an opportunity to reflect on the necessity for interventional radiologists to initiate follow-up standards and order relevant imaging after TARE. The CIRSE initiative Standards of Quality Assurance in Interventional Oncology is an initiative to improve quality assurance in interventional oncology, amongst which post-intervention follow-ups and imaging are one of the quality standards.”
