Dotter Interventional Institute


Oregon Angio Club

The Oregon Angio Club, organized under the direction of Dr. Bryan Petersen, met every two months in the Dotter Research Laboratory conference room. It began as a meeting of a few dedicated interventional radiologists, and later attracted 30 to 40 or more physicians, technologists and research associates from both Oregon and Washington. Each meeting featured a guest speaker. Participants earned Category 1 CME credit from OHSU. Community physicians attended and brought cases for presentation and discussion. Vascular surgeons, cardiologists and other subspecialists also participated. Alternative therapies and approaches to clinical problems were discussed over dinner outside of the usual hospital setting. The Oregon Angio Club was a wonderful forum for the exchange of ideas between interventionalists and other subspecialties in a friendly, informal environment.
