Warren Krackov, MD, FSIR | Society of Interventional Radiology

In our specialty, the stereotypes are ... you have to be a certain height. So I hear from women trainees and aspiring interventionalists that, "You know, you're too small ... You can't reach things." It's not true!
—Barbara Nickel Hamilton, MD

Warren Krackov, MD, FSIR, speaks with interventional radiologist Barbara Nickel Hamilton, MD, about gender disparities in IR, the role the SIR Women in IR Section has played in addressing gender bias, and about her new book, Save Lives, Enjoy Your Own.
