Medical doctors with 6 years of post medical school training who have specialized in both diagnostic imaging and minimally invasive therapies. They are the only specialty in medicine that is board certified in different imaging modalities and trained in using the imaging to guide treatments, either through blood vessels or directly through a tiny incision in the skin.

Interventional radiology (also known as IR) is a specialty that pioneered minimally invasive treatments as an alternative to open surgery for many medical conditions.
Through a tiny incision in your skin the interventional radiologist can deliver precise, targeted treatment to complex and sometimes life-threatening diseases and conditions.
Dr. Charles Dotter is regarded as the father of interventional radiology. From developing the automated x-ray rolling film, the interventional catheter, and the percutaneous angioplasty (to name a few), his contributions and collaborations have revolutionized medical treatments and the quality of care that is provided today.
