CVIR Awards

Due to a continued increase in qualifying articles, reader interest and author submissions, CVIR introduced the "Editors' Medal" in 1997. Subsequently, in 2012, the "CVIR Awards" (formerly known as: "Awards for outstanding service to the journal") were launched to honour one of the best articles from the previous year.


The awards are handed over during CIRSE's annual meeting, becoming a yearly CVIR tradition:
