Interventional Radiography

Learn more about Interventional Radiography.

Interventional 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.
