Interventional Radiology Interest Group

Overview

What is interventional radiology?

Interventional radiology (IR) centers on the threading of image-guided catheters through the vascular system to deliver minimally invasive, targeted treatments. Owing to the technological advances in medical imaging, IR specialists have pioneered procedures that deliver curative treatments to nearly every organ system. However, due to the recent genesis of IR, many pre-clinical medical students are unaware of the breadth of medical topics encompassed by the field. In collaboration with the diverse IR departments within affiliates of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, the mission of the interventional radiology interest group (IRIG) is to bring awareness to this budding field through interactive-didactic lectures, hands-on workshops, and research and networking panels.
