Dr. Link specializes in radiological diagnosis and interventional evaluation for vascular malformations of various disease systems and the treatment of varicose veins as well as other venous conditions. He also provides angiography services and arterial embolization therapy. His research centers on blood-flow measurement techniques, with investigations into new embolic agents, combination embolic therapies, liver blood flow, and microscopic anatomical changes (histopathology) of chronic arterial occlusions.
