Interventional Radiology

Interventional radiology involves using image guidance to perform minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in patients. The range of procedures is vast and covers the entire body (

TJ Turner | Co-President (IRIG)

I grew up in Kernersville, NC and studied Japanese and Chemistry at UNC Chapel Hill. My love for language learning motivated me to complete 3 separate exchange programs in Japan and Germany. My interests in medicine include minimally invasive treatment modalities, embolization techniques, and global health.

Estefania Gonzales | Co-President (IRIG)

I grew up in NJ and studied Chemistry at UNC (go Heels!). After moving to NYC for work and an MPH, I returned to UNC for medical school, where I’ve been involved in Student Government, the Association of Women Surgeons, and co-founded the Women in Radiology Education (WIRED) group. If you have questions about preclinical experiences with UNC IR, including the Castillo Scholars Program, please reach out!

Kaila Moore | Co-Vice President (IRIG)

I am from Durham, NC and I have been Interested in IR since high school. IR is at the forefront of medical technology, covering a wide array of minimally invasive procedures, and I am ecstatic to be able to take a multidisciplinary approach to assist patients one day. I am delighted about serving as the Co Vice-president of IRIG and look forward to sharing information about the field throughout the duration of my role.

Jack Felkner | Co-Vice President, Treasurer (IRIG)

I am from Charlotte, NC and attended UNC Chapel Hill for undergrad where I majored in health policy and management. I discovered IR early in my first year of medical school and have learned to love it because of the genuinely enthusiastic people and the ability to treat a diverse array of medical conditions with procedures.

After going through medical school, the alarmingly low ratio of female to male-identifying radiologists becomes apparent – the proportion of female-identifying radiologists has hovered at 25% of the workforce for the past decade. Because of this, mentorship is harder to come by for women interested in the field, as well as exposure to female role models in the field, which likely perpetuates the existing gender gap. Our goal with the development of the Women in Radiology Education (WIRED) chapter at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is to help close the gender gap in the specialty through teamwork, mentorship, and outreach among women at all stages of their careers in and toward radiology – attending physician, resident physician, medical student, undergraduate, and middle/high school levels. The more women we can reach at all stages of their academic careers, the closer we believe we are to overcoming the gender gap in radiology.
