We read with great interest the article by Ojha et al1 in which the authors expressed concern over the lack of doctors choosing interventional radiology (IR) as a subspecialty and predicted a shortage of interventional radiologists in the future. The authors suggest that this shortage may be due to low exposure to IR in the medical curriculum and suggest possible solutions to this issue.
