I guess my take-home point is that by no means is staffing for a stroke program a small undertaking, so it really is important to have the support from the hospital as well as other medical specialties when developing the interventional stroke program ... which we’re very fortunate we have. —Eric  A. Wang, MD, FSIR

Warren Krackov, MD, FSIR, speaks with interventional radiologist Eric A. Wang, MD, FSIR, about how he got involved in ischemic stroke care, the specialized training other IRs need to do the same, and how the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) supports the IR community in this important effort.
