Role of the Vascular Interventional Radiographer (VIR)

Vascular Interventional Radiographers (VIR) assist physicians with minimally invasive, image-guided vascular procedures, such as:

  • Vascular line placement
  • Angioplasty
  • Stenting
  • Thrombolysis 

Using advanced technology and sophisticated fluoroscopic equipment, you will be responsible for capturing images of the blood vessels for various pathologies, diagnostic testing, and interventional procedures. 

While students, VIR technologists work under the supervision of seasoned professionals and radiologists.

VIR technologists must be able to:

  • Work effectively with patients and health professionals
  • Operate sophisticated computer equipment
  • Observe radiation protection measures
  • Provide only the best in patient care
  • Work in a high stress, fast pace environment
