STRENGTHS IN THE FOLLOWING AREAS
Among the 6 main hospitals constituting the Cancer Institute AP-HP. Nord, four have dedicated teams for interventional radiology (IR), covering the whole territory for cancer patients. Mainly, these four teams have sub-specialty: Beaujon has skills in digestive interventional radiology (liver, biliary duct), Bichat has skills in lung and vascular procedures, Saint-Louis has a huge activity in breast cancer, while Lariboisiere has expertise in all bone procedures. All teams are in charge of intravascular devices for systemic treatments. All kind of techniques are developed in our sites, ranging from vascular embolization, vascular prosthesis and stenting, tumor ablation, CT and US-guided biopsies, bone cementoplasty, cryo-ablation, local intra-tumor therapeutic injection (viral vectors, immunotherapy, CAR-T, cytotoxics…etc.). Our teams thus realize more than 7,000 interventional procedures for various solid cancers of hematological malignancies, with H24, 7days/7 availability of expert onsite IR. The main tendency of our specialty is to ensure such highly technical procedures as outpatient procedures, even if short general anesthesia is needed with a close collaboration with the Anesthesia department.

IR radiologists of the 4 departments of Radiology have been part of guidelines in oncology (V. Vilgrain 2018 EASL Clinical Practice Guidelines on the management of hepatocellular carcinoma (European Association for the Study of the Liver), (J Hepatol 2018); V. Vilgrain 2021ESMO Guidelines on the management of pancreatic adenocarcinoma).
IR radiologists of the respective departments of Radiology are also speakers to annual National/European meetings on IR in particular CIRSE and ECIO.
