Organization of Fellowship
We are currently NOT accepting any fellowship applications at this time.
The Interventional Radiology Section at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center performs more than 5,000 procedures annually, covering the entire spectrum of diagnostic and interventional radiology. These include:
- Diagnostic arteriography and venography
- Vascular stenting
- Dialysis access maintenance
- Vena cava filter placement
- Intravascular foreign-body retrieval
- Central venous catheter insertion
- Percutaneous biliary and genitourinary interventions
- Percutaneous gastrostomy and jejunostomy
- Percutaneous abscess drainage and biopsy
- Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunts
More recently introduced procedures include catheter-directed thrombolysis for the management of iliofemoral venous thrombosis, carotid, vertebral, and renal artery stenting, uterine artery embolization for the treatment of fibroids, and percutaneous radiofrequency tumor ablation and chemoembolization, and treatment of varicose veins.
In addition to the performance of a wide variety of vascular and interventional radiologic procedures, each fellow gains extensive clinical experience in the pre- and post-procedural management of patients who are candidates for intervention, both in the IR clinical area and in the dedicated IR Clinic facility.
A didactic core curriculum in vascular and interventional radiology is provided. Fellows receive instruction in the performance and assessment of noninvasive laboratory techniques and play an active role in the performance and interpretation of duplex ultrasound, MRA and CTA.
The special procedures area includes 5 state-of-the-art angiography suites, a holding area, a reception area and conferencing facilities. Four dedicated color duplex ultrasound units are available for vascular imaging and procedural guidance. Six fast reconstructing computed tomography scanners, 4 magnetic resonance imaging units, and a positron emission tomography scanner with cyclotron are also available within the department. A dedicated CT is in the section as is a complete outpatient clinic fully staffed.
Participation in both clinical and basic research is encouraged. Financial support is provided for each fellow to attend 1 medical education meeting. Fellows receive additional support for travel to any major meeting at which they present a scientific paper.
There are daily teaching/work conferences and a written fellowship curriculum.
Our faculty consists of 7 interventional radiologists whose training and interests cover all areas of vascular and interventional radiology.
