Cardiac Interventional Radiography

Working as a Technologist in Cardiac Interventional Radiography

As a cardiac interventional radiographer, you’ll assist physicians with minimally invasive, image-guided procedures to help diagnose and treat heart and blood vessel diseases without surgery. In this challenging role, you’ll work with sophisticated fluoroscopic equipment to take images of the heart and the blood vessels surrounding it. You might assist with procedures such as angioplasty, stenting, thrombolysis, embolization, ablation, and biopsies. 

Obtaining ARRT certification and registration in Cardiac Interventional Radiography will give you the experience and skills you need to take part in these important procedures.
