Dr. Romaric Loffroy, MD, PhD, is Professor of Interventional Radiology currently doing research at the University of Dijon School of Medicine. Originally from Dijon, France, Dr. Loffroy obtained his medical degree from the University of Bourgogne/Franche-Comté, Dijon, France in 2001 and then perceived his residency in radiology at the same University which he completed in 2006. Thereafter, his special interest in the field of interventional radiology led him to do a clinical fellowship in interventional radiology at the department of vascular and interventional radiology at the University Hospital in Dijon, France. His field of expertise is in interventional radiology, especially in embolization techniques with particular interest in gastrointestinal bleeding as well as peripheral vascular diseases. He has been at the fore front of newer and more successful techniques in embolization of gastrointestinal bleeders which reduce the failure rate as well as the necessity of reinterventions. Dr. Loffroy’s keen interest in the field of research in interventional oncology brought him to the research center in the department of interventional radiology at the prestigious Johns Hopkins Medical Hospital in Baltimore as a postdoctoral research fellow in 2009. Dr. Loffroy is currently doing research in improving tumor imaging quality in interventional radiology and working towards newer interventional radiology therapies for liver cancer, deep vein thrombosis and arterial diseases, as well as development of new embolic materials. Dr. Loffroy has published numerous SCI journal papers and book chapters, edited/reviewed for many academic journals, coordinated/participated in several international/national projects, served as an evaluation expert for organizations such as French Society of Radiology (SFR) and High Authority of Health (HAS). Dr. Loffroy is currently the President of the French Society of Cardiovascular and Interventional Imaging (SFICV), Head of the Department of Vascular and Interventional Radiology and Director of the Center of Mini-Invasive Image-Guided Therapies in Dijon.
