In 2008 13 ESIR courses were organised by the CIRSE Foundation, including 4 Institute Courses held at the Cordis Cardiac & Vascular Institute (CCVI) in Hamburg (DE) and at the Crossroads Institute in Diegem (BE). Due to the great success of the 2007 RFA course in French language, another RFA course was held in French in 2008, France. Additionally one course on Embolisation Therapy was held in Spanish in Valencia, Spain. The ESIR course programme 2008 is kindly supported through educational grants from the professional education programme sponsors.
