As the ARRT continually works to ensure that the content and educational requirements of the Vascular-Interventional Radiography Examination reflect our unique skill set as technologists, the Association of Vascular and Interventional Radiographers is working to provide both our members, and non-members, with the resources required to meet those requirements as well as excel in our profession.
