The Vascular and Interventional Section consists of 5 CAQ-eligible or certified interventional radiology faculty members. The ancillary staff of the department includes 3 physician assistants, 2 nurse practioners, 14 nurses,17 technologists, 1 inventory coordinator and 3 schedulers.
The facility has 5 angiographic interventional suites, 1 dedicated interventional CT, and two PICC suites equipped with US and mobile c-arm fluoro units. All angio labs have dedicated US, now including four new GE units.
A recently constructed dedicated IR clinic is in place with 4 examining rooms. The clinic is staffed with 2 dedicated secretaries and a coordinator. The clinic includes a patient waiting area and a physician workroom. The clinic is adjacent to the angiography suites for easy access. The remaining IR clinical area has been extensively renovated over the last year, providing improved patient access and throughput as well as increased observational, monitoring, office and conference areas. Planning for a free-standing outpatient IR facility is underway.
