UCSF Radiology: Interventional 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 available via our convenient online video format 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


After viewing this activity, participants will demonstrate the ability 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 fi broid 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
