Interventional Radiology Symposium for Medical Students

UVA Interventional Radiology Symposium for Medical Students



November 3, 2018 from 9am – 3pm
Location: UVA School of Medicine, Education Resource Center


Getting to Know Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology (IR) is a specialty that combines the latest imaging technologies with image-guided minimally-invasive procedures. As the clinical paradigm and available technologies continue to rapidly evolve, more IR treatment options are emerging for patients.

Every November, the Department of Radiology holds a symposium that provides students with an overview of the imaging, anatomy, pathology and treatments pertinent to Interventional Radiology.  Participants have an opportunity to get hands-on simulation experience, with exposure to several devices and techniques used in minimally invasive procedures.  The training pathway, with a focus on the recently approved primary specialty of Interventional Radiology, will also be discussed.
