This month’s journal-based CME article is titled "Spinal arterial blood supply does not arise from the bronchial arteries: a detailed analysis of angiographic studies performed for hemoptysis"
In this study, the authors evaluate the angiographic prevalence of spinal artery supply arising from bronchial arteries during bronchial artery embolization and provides additional insight regarding the identification of spinal arteries.
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of interventional radiologists, pulmonoligists, nurses, techs, and trainees at all levels with special interest in the treatment of hemoptysis.
To receive CME credit for this journal-based CME activity, participants must read the journal article and score 75% or better on the post test. Participants will have three opportunities to score 75% or better.
After participating in this journal-based CME activity, learners should be able to:
- Identify most common angiographic bronchial artery anatomy
- Describe the observer neurologic complication rate during bronchial artery embolization
- Indicate the most frequently observed origin of a spinal artery seen during bronchial arteriography

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essentials and Standards of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
The Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. SIR designates this education activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
This program is approved for 1 self-assessment CME credit (SA-CME) by the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) - approved October 1, 2019. SIR is awarded Deemed Status by the American Board of Radiology (ABR). The SA-CME credit offered for this enduring activity meets the ABR’s criteria for self-assessment toward the purpose of fulfilling requirements in the ABR Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program.
