IGI-50 conference celebrates 50th anniversary of angioplasty

This week, OHSU is hosting the IGI-50 conference, celebrating the 50th anniversary of angioplasty. In 1964, OHSU's Dr. Charles Dotter performed the world's first percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, pioneering the field of interventional radiology.

The multidisciplinary conference places current issues in image-guided intervention within a historical framework that begins with Dr. Dotter's angioplasty.  In anticipation of the conference, The Portland Business Insider recently published an article about Dr. Dotter, drawing on an insightful interview with Dr. Albert Starr.
