Surgeons Operating On PatientInterventional radiography is a highly specialized branch of radiology. An interventional radiographer works side-by-side with radiologists and cardiologists to perform minimally invasive procedures on the heart, vascular system and almost every organ system in the human body. These procedures include both routine angiographic imaging studies and cutting-edge therapeutic interventions.

 

Program Description

Enjoy the flexibility of online learning! The Cox College Interventional Radiography Program is completed online over 12 months in just 3 semesters. Students are prepared for 2 ARRT registries: Vascular-Interventional Radiography (VI) and Cardiac Interventional Radiography (CI). All courses in the IR program can be transferred to the Cox College Bachelor of Science in Diagnostic Imaging degree program. All students entering the IR program receive 64 transfer credits toward the BSDI and 40 credit hours for completing the program.

The program is designed to meet the specific needs of all prospective students, including practicing technologists.

  • All courses may be applied towards ARRT continuing education requirements (48 C.E.’s per 3 credit hour course)
  • The program fulfills ARRT “structured education” requirements
  • Unregistered technologists practicing in Interventional Radiography may opt out of the clinical components of the program and complete didactic-only courses in preparation for the CI and/or VI registries
  • An extensive registry review course is available in the program


Clinical Sites

Students have availability of pre-arranged clinical sites in Missouri, or you may contact the program adviser (thaddeus.morris@coxcollege.edu) with questions regarding alternative clinical sites outside of Missouri.
