Education

Procedural Experience

We emphasize progressive independence and graded competence for all our IR residents and fellows. Residents learn to assess, intervene and manage patients from a wide range of backgrounds, and are given increasing autonomy in performing diagnostic and interventional procedures.

Our residents participate in the complete range of interventional procedures for all patients - from pediatric to geriatric – including the following:

Traditional Vascular Services
  • Diagnostic angiography and angioplasty
  • Stents and stent grafts (e.g., mesenteric artery stenting, aortic aneurysm repair, etc.)
  • Arterial and venous thrombolysis
  • Inferior vena cava (IVC) filter placement
  • Uterine fibroid embolization
  • Management of deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Hemodialysis graft management
  • Embolization of vascular lesions
  • Venous access
Nonvascular Interventional Procedures
  • Imaging-guided biopsies and abscess drainages
  • Percutaneous nephrostomy & ureteral stent placement
  • Biliary drainage and stent placement
  • Percutaneous feeding tubes
  • Percutaneous osteoplasty (i.e. vertebroplasty)
Interventional Oncology

Our interventional team is an integral member of Montefiore's liver service, performing the following specialized treatments in both pre- and post-transplant patients:

  • Trans arterial chemoembolization (TACE and DEB-TACE)
  • Y90 Radioembolization
  • Trans jugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) placement
  • Radiofrequency and cryoablation of tumors.
