John Racadio, MD, has been practicing interventional radiology (IR) for 14 years and has been the division chief of interventional radiology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center for the past 11 years. He has expertise in performing a wide range of vascular procedures including angiography, angioplasty, embolization, vascular access, and thrombolysis in patients ranging from 500g to 150kg.

He is also the director of the interventional radiology research lab, which is part of the Department of Radiology Imaging Research Center (IRC). This state-of-the-art IR lab, which is identical to our clinical IR labs, possesses cutting edge digital flat detector technology including 3-D rotational angiography (3DRA), 3-D Roadmapping, and C-arm cone beam CT. These features provide superior image quality for digital subtraction angiography, 3-D angiography reconstruction, and “CT-like” imaging. Lab support staff includes RT(R) licensed IR technologists, and an IR lab manager. The long term goal of the IR research lab is to develop new image guided interventional procedures and imaging techniques and protocols to improve clinical outcomes. Having an IR research lab identical to our IR clinical labs facilitates translation of lab results into clinical practice.
