Interventional Radiology Interest Group

The Interventional Radiology Interest Group (IRIG) helps students experience the unique specialty that is Interventional Radiology (IR). IR combines the seeing eye of diagnostic radiology with the hands-on approach of minimally invasive surgery to perform complex procedures under real-time image guidance. From restoring blood flow through special endovascular catheters to cutting off blood supply to tumors using microscopic beads, IR procedures tend to be quick and see fewer complications than traditional open surgery. The IRIG's primary purpose is to introduce medical students to the world of IR and to host an annual symposium with interesting lectures from various OSU IR faculty and hands-on activities by COOK Medical to simulate the IR procedure experience.
