Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is an interventional radiologist (IR)?

A. An IR is a medical specialist who uses state of the art radiologic imaging to guide tiny catheters through the body to treat a wide variety of conditions that once required surgery. The American Board of Radiology certifies general radiologists. Those with additional training and expertise are eligible to take an examination for a Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) in Vascular and Interventional Radiology. Most IRs performing UFE will be CAQ certified.
