UCSF Interventional Radiology Review

University of California San Francisco, Radiology and Biomedical Imaging

The UCSF Interventional Radiology Review  program is designed to be a comprehensive review of both basic vascular and non-vascular interventional radiologic procedures, as well as emerging areas of interventional radiologic practice. This activity covers all common interventional radiologic procedures and focuses on indications, pre-procedural assessment, technical aspects of the procedure, as well as post-procedural follow-up.

This activity is now available in video on DVD and MP4 formats and should be suitable for radiologists actively practicing interventional radiology, and newly qualified interventional radiologists wanting to compare their knowledge and training with UCSF experts. This activity is focused primarily on body IR, rather than neuroradiological interventions.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the participant should be able to:
  • Describe the contemporary methods of vascular recanalization, and be familiar with the common devices for endoluminal therapies with the indications for their use and associated complications
  • Recommend percutaneous methods of lower extremity therapy for varicose veins
  • Select and use the appropriate embolic agents for treating hemorrhage secondary to trauma and gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Recognize indications for percutaneous nephrostomy,  percutaneous abscess drainage and percutaneous biliary drainage, and the techniques used
  • Anticipate success rates of uterine fibroid embolization for menorrhagia, pelvic pain and urinary frequency
  • Evaluate contraindications to percutaneous biopsy
  • Distinguish between different devices used for percutaneous ablation of liver and kidney lesions
  • Recommend the use of and contraindications to hepatic arterial chemoembolization and Y90 radioembolization
  • Utilize appropriate imaging techniques such as CTA, MRA, coronary CTA and noninvasive arterial assessment
  • Describe the current status or carotid artery interventions and  vertebroplasty
