John Moriarty, MD, RPVI
Dr. Moriarty is a specialist in vascular and interventional radiology at UCLA. He is a member of both the departments of Radiology and of Medicine (cardiology). He is director of the program for interventional innovation and co-director of vascular ultrasound service.
His areas of clinical expertise and research interest include venous disease, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), IVC filters and arteriovenous venous malformations. His expertise also includes the use of advanced imaging scans for cardiac and vascular disease diagnosis and management, as well as delivering highly precise vascular therapy to control bleeding, treat tumors and shrink malformations (embolization).
His research interests are primarily clinical: He is the national principal investigator for the RAPID registry of Angiovac usage for treatment of clots and vegetations, and an investigator on multiple trials for stents, IVC filter, treatment of acute and chronic DVTs and novel embolic materials. He has published numerous papers and book chapters, and given many national and international invited lectures on these topics.
Dr. Moriarty obtained his medical degree from University College Dublin in Dublin, Ireland, where he graduated with First Class Honours (Summa Cum Laude) in both Medicine and Surgery, and received the Misericordiae Gold Medal for placing first in his graduating class. After completing his internship in both medicine and surgery, he commenced his internal medicine residency in the Mater University Hospital, Dublin, and completed his board certification in Internal Medicine (MRCPI) in 2005.Dr. Moriarty commenced his radiology residency in 2005, also in the Mater Hospital. He served as Chief Resident and also received the Radiologic Society of Ireland Gold Medal in 2007, prior to becoming a fellow of the Faculty of Radiologists in 2008. Dr. Moriarty moved to UCLA in 2009 where he completed fellowships in Interventional Radiology and Cardiovascular Imaging. Upon completion of his fellowship, Dr. Moriarty accepted a faculty position at UCLA. He is board certified by the American Board of Radiology, and holds a certificate of added qualification in Vascular and Interventional Radiology.
He currently serves as an Associate Professor at UCLA. His primary goals are to provide the highest quality of care for his patients in interventional radiology and cardiovascular radiology, with a focus on arterial and venous disease therapeutics, advanced imaging, AVMs, dialysis interventions, and embolization.
