Abstract

Interventional neuroradiology (INR) is a relatively new clinical subspeciality that uses radiologic imaging, endovascular techniques, and clinical expertise to diagnose and treat diseases involving the central nervous system, head and neck, and spine. Although rapid and successful advances of INR have been achieved in Korea as well as in the world during the past two decades, all of INR procedures still pose a significant risk of misdiagnosis or complication, "the stroke". Accordingly, appropriate and adequate training and experience are essential for the safe performance of these procedures, and minimum program requirements of them must be standardized. However, no recommendations or guidelines for fellowship training and education have been established in Korean Society of Interventional Neuroradiology (KSIN) so far. They must be discussed more and will be established and evolved.
