Intervention curriculum

Dr Mostafa El-Feky and Dr Bruno Di Muzio et al.

The interventional radiology curriculum is one of our curriculum articles and aims to be a collection of articles that represent the core interventional knowledge. As the different procedures are intrinsically linked to the various radiology subspecialties, its content is mixed with some of the other curriculum topics.


Topics are divided into radiology areas with their respective interventional procedures.
