What is a cardiovascular interventional technologist?

The Profession

CVIT with patient
Cardiovascular Interventional Technologists inject dye into blood vessels and take special images. These images show how well the blood vessel is working, and the techs use them during various treatments.

The CVIT Technologist is a key member of the radiology team that performs vascular and interventional procedures. The procedures are unique because they require the use of technical, radiologic, and clinical skills.

CVIT involves specialized radiographic techniques used in angiography, interventional procedures (i.e. angioplasty), and central venous access procedures.
