Vascular/Interventional Radiology Fellowship Program
"The fellowship offers great case variety covering the spectrum of interventional radiology. Faculty are all excellent teachers and even better to work with on a daily basis. This is a great year whether you are looking for a career in academics or private practice."
Dr. Elliott Mueller
The Interventional Radiology Division offers four positions per year in its ACGME approved fellowship program. The section, which is staffed by five faculty members, performs procedures on about 6000 patients per year. Our Heart and Vascular center features four state-of-the-art Siemens angiographic suites with the latest in CT technology, including a dual-source CT scanner capable of performing high resolution volumetric imaging for vascular imaging and cardiac imaging.

Dr. Chris Erikson, Dr. Ben Henderson, Dr. Usman Manzoor, Dr. Luke Wilkins and Dr. Ricardo Yamada
In addition to vascular and drainage procedures, the vascular/interventional section routinely performs biopsies under fluoroscopic, CT or ultrasound guidance. A considerable number of vascular cases are interventional in character, ranging from angioplasty, fibrinolytic therapy, embolization and TIPS.
Furthermore, MRI and CT examinations associated with the vascular system, as well as requiring interventional expertise, are performed by members of each section. The fellows are encouraged to participate in the many ongoing clinical trials within the division, as well as animal research.
A tremendous expansion of the services has opened up with the addition of the new Heart and Vascular Center in MUSC's Ashley River Tower.
