“When I was introduced to interventional radiology, I suddenly knew the way in which I wanted to be able to make a positive difference in people’s lives. I wanted to be an interventionalist,” said Dr. Gilvydis. “I wanted to be able to directly intervene in disease processes using advanced technologies, because I saw how it made a dramatic, positive difference in people’s lives. Making that difference was why I had become a doctor in the first place.”
