Specialty Description

Interventional radiology focuses on diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of patient care through expertise in diagnostic imaging, image-guided, minimally-invasive procedures, and the evaluation and clinical management of patients with conditions amenable to these methods. The residency program in interventional radiology offers quality medical educational experience in image-based diagnosis, as well as image-guided procedural education, and the peri- and post-procedural care of patients. Education in both the integrated and independent program formats includes resident development of mature technical skills and clinical judgment. On completion of the interventional radiology program, residents should be able to demonstrate competence in the specialty with sufficient expertise to act as independent providers of interventional procedures and care as consultants.
