Interventional Radiology Fellowship

  • Fellowship Overview

    The goal of the program is to train physicians to become proficient in minimally-invasive image guided interventions to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system. Residents will actively participate in all aspects of clinical practice including pre-procedural work-ups, consults, and post-procedure follow-ups. We perform the full gamut of vascular and non-vascular interventional procedures.

    Lists of performed procedures includes (but not limited to):

    1. Comprehensive venous access (PICCs, ports, hickmans, triple lumens, dialysis catheters etc) including placement, removal, and maintenance/troubleshooting.
    2. Comprehensive dialysis access procedures including fistulograms, angioplasty, embolization, and declots.
    3. Aortic, pulmonary, mesenteric, renal, and peripheral angiography, angioplasty, atherectomy, thrombectomy and stent placements. Carbon dioxide angiography.
    4. Arterial and venous thrombolysis
    5. Comprehensive biopsy services (US, CT, and fluoro guided), percutaneous, transjugular liver biopsy
    6. Comprehensive hepatic interventional oncology treatments including radio/chemoembolizations, and microwave/cryo-ablations.
    7. IVC filter placements and retrievals
