    Are you asking about interventional cardiology or interventional radiology? They have evolved into very different fields. Typically the non-interventional radiologist has limited patient contact, but quite a few interventional radiologists end up slowing down as they get older and getting back into diagnostic radiology, some do both for the duration of their careers.

    Try posting your question in the cardiology forum.

    Angiograms of the coronary arteries are done by cardiologists during cardiac catheterizations. Angioplasty and stent placements, as well as other diagnostic testing are done during this procedure. The field is known as interventional cardiology. Interventiola Radiology includes procedures like ct guided needle biopsies among many others. Many procedures fall across specialty lines. These procedures fall into the category many physicians refer to as "turf battles": physicians of different specialties competing for the same procedure.
