Membership Application
I am pleased to introduce the CO2 Angiography Society, a multispecialty organization dedicated to the virtues of intravascular CO2 to diagnose and intervene while preserving renal function. The genesis of the Society developed from a need for like-minded physicians and healthcare professionals to have a collective forum for the ongoing advancement of intravascular CO2.

The Society recently held its 2nd annual conference on June 4, 2016 in New Orleans. This year’s conference was endorsed by the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) and successfully covered a spectrum of learning objectives including the future of CO2 as an imaging agent and safe delivery of CO2.

To enable the Society to continue its mission, we welcome all healthcare providers to take an active role in learning more about the unique and complicated healthcare needs of those with renal insufficiency, allergy to iodinated contrast, and disease entities where traditional liquid contrast fails in diagnosis or treatment.

Take a minute to download the membership application for the CO2 Angiography Society, fill it our and return it to us.

We cannot affect change in our industry and optimize patient outcomes without dedicated leadership. Your support of this important initiative is sincerely appreciated.
