Statement of Need

Interventional radiology is a rapidly growing field, constantly evolving and developing new techniques and addressing new challenges with the goal towards improving patient outcomes through minimally-invasive image-guided procedures. Vascular disease is a leading health concern for which endovascular interventions play an important role. Targeted image-guided oncologic therapies are increasing in utilization with the pace of technological and clinical advancement. There is a demand for the interventional radiologist to expand their practice through these new clinical developments while facing pressure to contain costs wherever possible. Staying current with changes in technology and patient indications relies on the continuing education and collaboration of physicians, nurses, technologists and others working within interventional radiology and the greater healthcare community. This CME activity will help interventional radiologists and their partners address these issues and optimize their practice with quality improvement strategies to increase communication, safety, and efficiency.

Target Audience

This course is aimed at interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons, interventional cardiologists, oncologists, technologists, nurses, physician assistants, residents, fellows, and scientists involved in image-guided interventional procedures and therapies.
