The Department of Interventional Radiology was founded in 2018 and is one of the first departments of its kind. As a new clinical field in medicine, Interventional Radiology is one of the most rapidly-advancing and important fields of clinical care based on numbers of annual manuscripts published, new procedures developed, and unique solutions to complex problems. Interventional Radiology crosses all organ systems and many fields in clinical medicine, continuously striving to provide new and less invasive solutions to diverse clinical problems spanning from cancers to cardiovascular diseases. This field combines imaging, medical devices, and other technologies relevant to clinical practice.
Led by nationally reputable pioneers in this new specialty in medicine, this department will bring both academia and clinical medicine together to advance the field of minimally invasive image-guided therapy as both a technical and clinical specialty in medicine.
