Women in IR
The increase of IR treatments in the past two decades has led to a rising number of young physicians choosing IR as their specialty. Unfortunately this rise has not been reflected in the number of women involved in IR, with only about 12.5% of European and 2% of U.S. interventionalists being female.
Spain seems to be the exception to this phenomenon with 26% of its interventional radiologists being female. IR News spoke to four women working in IR in Barcelona to find out what Spain is doing right on the path to equal gender representation.
