      Collapse Overview
      Andrew C. Picel, MD, is a board-certified radiologist who specializes in diagnosing and treating disease and injury through the use of medical imaging techniques. These imaging techniques include X-ray, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound. As an interventional radiologist, Dr. Picel uses minimally invasive, image-guided procedures targeted to treat the disease process.

      Dr. Picel provides treatment for individuals with circulatory system diseases, such as aortoiliac disease and peripheral vascular disease. He performs numerous procedures for the treatment of venous insufficiency and varicose veins. These procedures commonly include endovenous ablation and sclerotherapy.

      Clinically, Dr. Picel also has a special interest in interventional oncology, uterine fibroid embolization, ovarian vein embolization, occlusion balloon placement for invasive placenta, prostate artery embolization, and vascular imaging.

      An assistant professor in the Department of Radiology at UC San Diego School of Medicine, Dr. Picel trains radiology fellows and residents. His research interests focus on prostate artery embolization.
