Mimi, Lisbeth, and Christine are radiographers in angio/interventionalradiology, John is senior radiographer in neurointervention, and Evais well known in the region as a highly respected and experiencedradiographer in neurointervention. She is manager of theAngio/interventional radiology and Ultrasound Unit at Oslo UniversityHospital, Rikshospitalet where all of the current committee arecurrently in practice.

The course now announced builds on the hard work of several"generations". As the role of the radiographer in interventionalradiology has developed over the years, so too has the need forspecific education, training, guided practice, and exchanges ofexperience between practitioners.

The development of the role of the radiographer in this field wasdescribed at Karolinska Hospital,Stockholm in 1997 at the”Nordisk Kurs i Interventionell Neuroradiologi för sjukskjöterskoroch radiografer” where Margareta Ericson credited Dr Pål Svendsenas a driving force from as early as 1981. Amongst renowned contributorsat this course were Dr Svendsen, Prof Kai Ericson, and Prof. Per Nakstad.

More recently ”Nordisk Utbildning for Interventions Sköterskor”at the same centre in january 2013 was organised by RadiographersJohanna Doshé and Maggie Östman with Dr Tommy Andersson. The focus wason Stroke treatment, Stenosis, AVMs and Flow Diverters with amongstothers Drs Michael Södermann and Mats Cronquist.

By 2014 the NNIRC was taking form, as Radiographers Mona Ekman,Kim Theill and Anne Kinch organised the ”Nordic NeurointerventionalRadiology Course -NNIRC” in Copenhagen, delivering a highlysuccessful course attracting over 50 participants from Denmark,Sweden, Norway, Belgium, and Germany. Among the highly respectedspeakers were Prof. Rene Chapot and Dr Markus Holmanspötter.

At a meeting after the course, there was enthusiasm for continuing thetradition, passing on the baton to a new organising committee. Todaythe NNIRC is a not-for-profit organisation registered in Norway(org.nr 915 630 170) constituted specifically to organise this event,and in a wider sense to promote and facilitate contact betweencolleagues in our target group.
