Since 2004, the Charles T. Dotter Department of Interventional Radiology has organized yearly Vascular and Interventional Education Days for technologists and nurses.

The goal: update technologists and nurses about recent developments in interventional treatment.

The two-day course is led by highly experienced interventionalists, specialists, technologists and nurses from Charles T. Dotter Department of Interventional Radiology and other Oregon hospitals.

The course covers such foundational topics as radiation safety, patient care, pain control during procedures and prevention of complications as well as such cutting-edge areas as new interventional treatments of vascular heart disease, liver disease, and stroke; interventions in trauma and venous diseases; new techniques for cancer treatment; and updates on neuro-interventions and embolization. The two-day event is further enriched with exhibitors from companies offering the best in emerging technology.
