Tribute to Charles Dotter

Happy Birthday Charles Dotter 


Charles Theodore Dotter (14 June 1920 – 15 February 1985) was a pioneering US vascular radiologist who is credited with developing interventional radiology. Dotter, together with his trainee Dr Melvin P. Judkins, described angioplasty in 1964. Dotter invented angioplasty and the catheter-delivered stent, which were first used to treat peripheral arterial disease. 

Charles Dotter is commonly known as the "Father of Interventional Radiology."
