It was first brought up at USC. My father's surgeon mentioned he was trying to hire a radiologist away from UCLA. Turns out, the doctor wasn't for hire and my father's surgeon recommended doing it at USC. Dad wanted the radiologist his surgeon mentioned. In the end, the surgeon did set it up with the radiologist he tried to hire at UCLA. The abdominal interventional radiologist was Dr. David Lu.

The procedure is in and out on the same day. It was actually done in the pediatric surgery room since it was available and bigger than the small room where it is normally done. That was about this time in 2002.
