1 Interventional Radiology in Turkey Past-Present and Future İzzet Rozanes (EBIR) VKV Koç University School of Medicine

2 1895 X- Rays were discovered X- Rays were discovered H.G.Wells wrote his novel “The time machine” H.G.Wells wrote his novel “The time machine” He was inspired by Nicola Tesla (brilliant inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist and futurist He was inspired by Nicola Tesla (brilliant inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist and futurist Who was inspired by the space-time concept of special relativity by Albert Einstein Who was inspired by the space-time concept of special relativity by Albert Einstein

3 Fact is the Place where Fiction has Already been

4 W.C.Roentgen Born in 1845 Born in 1845 Became a mechanical engineer in 1868 Became a mechanical engineer in 1868 Became the head of the “Physik Institute” of Würzburg University in 1879 Became the head of the “Physik Institute” of Würzburg University in 1879 In 8 November 1895 notices a luminenesence in a fluorescence tube while working with cathode ray tubes In 8 November 1895 notices a luminenesence in a fluorescence tube while working with cathode ray tubes Conducts experiments and notes that the rays can penetrate solid objects Conducts experiments and notes that the rays can penetrate solid objects Delivers a paper to the secretary of Wurzburg medical-physics society titled “on a new kind of rays” Delivers a paper to the secretary of Wurzburg medical-physics society titled “on a new kind of rays”

5 W.C.Roentgen His discovery causes a big sensation His discovery causes a big sensation All newspapers cover his story All newspapers cover his story Receives the Nobel prize for physics in 1901 Receives the Nobel prize for physics in 1901 Does not deliver an inauguration speech because of his shyness Does not deliver an inauguration speech because of his shyness Gives his money prize as a present to his university to be used for research Gives his money prize as a present to his university to be used for research Dedicates his discovery to humanity Dedicates his discovery to humanity Dies in poverty in 1923 Dies in poverty in 1923

6 Radiology 1400 scientific papers are published on X Rays in the first 10 years 1400 scientific papers are published on X Rays in the first 10 years A new speciality of medicine is created A new speciality of medicine is created BJR starts regular publication in 1905 BJR starts regular publication in 1905

7 Meanwhile The Ottoman empire( ) and Modern Turkey (1923-) are not indifferent to scientific progress primarily 2nd to military disadvantages The Ottoman empire( ) and Modern Turkey (1923-) are not indifferent to scientific progress primarily 2nd to military disadvantages “Islahat” modernisation period “Islahat” modernisation period st constitution “tanzimat” st constitution “tanzimat” 1839 First engineering school 1791, medical school 1826, science school 1863 First engineering school 1791, medical school 1826, science school 1863 The republic is a modernisation project per se The republic is a modernisation project per se

Turkish Congress of Radiology is held in st. Turkish Congress of Radiology is held in 1966 Aspirations of a younger generation of dynamic radiologists is not fulfilled Aspirations of a younger generation of dynamic radiologists is not fulfilled The Turkish Society of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology is founded in 1991 in Ankara The Turkish Society of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology is founded in 1991 in Ankara

10 1994, Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology “official journal of the Turkish Society of Radiology” starts “regular” “publication 1994, Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology “official journal of the Turkish Society of Radiology” starts “regular” “publication 2000, Competition has activated the Istanbul society and following a period of sibling rivalry common sense prevails 2000, Competition has activated the Istanbul society and following a period of sibling rivalry common sense prevails The Istanbul society becames the National Society of Interventional Radiology-TGRD The Istanbul society becames the National Society of Interventional Radiology-TGRD The Ankara society becames the National Society of Radiology-TRD (approx members presently) The Ankara society becames the National Society of Radiology-TRD (approx members presently)

11 Charles Theodore Dotter “renaissance man ” Painter, pilot, car racer accomplished mountaneer, (67 peaks over 3500m), dog enthusiast Painter, pilot, car racer accomplished mountaneer, (67 peaks over 3500m), dog enthusiast Can be credited with having invented “Interventional Radiology” Can be credited with having invented “Interventional Radiology” “Karlovy speech 1963” “Karlovy speech 1963” Performed and described PTA with his trainee Judkins in 1964 Performed and described PTA with his trainee Judkins in 1964 Invented catheter delivered stent (1969), first thrombolysis (1972) first PTA baloon (1972) first j tip guide wire, described first graft-stent Invented catheter delivered stent (1969), first thrombolysis (1972) first PTA baloon (1972) first j tip guide wire, described first graft-stent Did all this despite 2x CABG and 2x Hodgkin lymphoma tx by Rx Did all this despite 2x CABG and 2x Hodgkin lymphoma tx by Rx Received the Nobel price for medicine in 1978 Received the Nobel price for medicine in 1978

12 Charles Dotter “Crazy Charly”

13 Meanwhile back in Turkey Turkish Radiogists read the literature Turkish Radiogists read the literature Follow international conventions Follow international conventions PTA and stenting procedures are performed in academic centers in major Turkish hospitals almost simultaneously in early 1980’s PTA and stenting procedures are performed in academic centers in major Turkish hospitals almost simultaneously in early 1980’s A new generation travels to “interventional radiology” training to North America and Europe in 1980’ and 1990’ A new generation travels to “interventional radiology” training to North America and Europe in 1980’ and 1990’

14 Meanwhile back in Turkey They return and a new generation of radiologist performing almost exclusively “interventional radiology” emerges They return and a new generation of radiologist performing almost exclusively “interventional radiology” emerges They train the next generation They train the next generation TGRD founded in year 2000 is affiliated with Cirse in 2007 TGRD founded in year 2000 is affiliated with Cirse in 2007

15 Growing membership Growing membership 2009: : : : : : : : : : =380

16 What we have accomplished We have a democratically run, robust, growing society We have a democratically run, robust, growing society Most teaching hospitals in Turkey perform the basic interventional radiologic procedures Most teaching hospitals in Turkey perform the basic interventional radiologic procedures Some centers are highly advanced in the quality and magnitude of the procedures they perform Some centers are highly advanced in the quality and magnitude of the procedures they perform Majority of “interventional radiologic procedures” in Turkey are performed by radiologists Majority of “interventional radiologic procedures” in Turkey are performed by radiologists

17 What we have not been able to accomplish Interventional Radiology has not been recognised as a speciality or subspecialty by the Health Ministery despite efforts, 2nd to insufficient lobbying power Interventional Radiology has not been recognised as a speciality or subspecialty by the Health Ministery despite efforts, 2nd to insufficient lobbying power We don’t have regular training program We don’t have regular training program Few teaching hospitals have fellowship programs Few teaching hospitals have fellowship programs Most teaching hospitals in Turkey do not have interventional radiology beds Most teaching hospitals in Turkey do not have interventional radiology beds A substantial number of IR do not have patient admitting priviledges in their hospitals A substantial number of IR do not have patient admitting priviledges in their hospitals

18 The future Minimal invasive procedures have a bright future Minimal invasive procedures have a bright future Although we have lost a lot of procedures we invented, Interventional Radiology has managed to survive 2nd to the ingenuity of IR Although we have lost a lot of procedures we invented, Interventional Radiology has managed to survive 2nd to the ingenuity of IR

19 If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants Isaac Newton Thank you
