Background & Accomplishments

The Jefferson Interventional Radiology division consists of eight full-time faculty members; two full-time physician assistants; two part-time physician assistants, and a full-time nurse practitioner. Facilities include four angiographic procedure rooms, a dedicated interventional CT scanner with integrated fluoroscopy, and a dedicated biopsy service with three procedure rooms, each equipped with several high-end ultrasound units. The division has an admitting service, an interventional radiology and venous disease clinic and three multi-disciplinary clinics.

The Interventional Radiology division at Jefferson was the first institution in the country to use vascular stents clinically, and has extensive experience in endovascular procedures for treatment of all types of vascular disease. It has maintained a proactive approach to cutting edge procedures and therapies. Jefferson’s status as both a Level One Trauma Center and a Transplant Center, insures a diverse and complex patient and procedure mix.

In addition, the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center has ensured interventional oncology is a major part of the division's case load.
