Who is Dr. Devane?

Dr. Mike Devane has been a practicing radiologist at Prisma Health–Upstate for more than 15 years and the medical director of Interventional Radiology at Prisma Health Greenville Memorial Hospital. He is also the Vice Chair for Academics and also a research facilitator for the radiology department. In addition to these roles, he also serves as a clinical assistant professor of radiology at University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville and the associate editor of the journal, Prisma Health–Upstate Proceedings, and serves on the Prisma Health–Upstate Cancer Care Committee. 

Dr. Devane’s research focuses on interdisciplinary, radiology-related medicine. He has helped shape the implementation of an implantable PORT comparative effectiveness study as principal investigator and supervisor of Clemson graduate students. 

In collaboration with the Department of Public Health Sciences at Clemson University, Dr. Devane and a team of researchers are investigating central venous port outcomes placed by Interventional Radiology and Surgery. Dr. Devane will be the representative from the Department of Interventional Radiology in this research effort and will also be working on projects related to other topics in radiology and public health. 

He was also involved in a research project with the Department of Radiology and the Department of Gastroenterology at Prisma Health–Upstate investigating ultrasound elastography and FibroSure serum test. This project assessesed hepatic fibrosis in patients with hypoplastic right heart syndrome status post Fontan procedure. He was a lead investigator with Gary Abrams, MD. 

Dr. Devane has co-authored five posters presented at scientific meetings, co-authored research podcasts, and co-authored a publication in a scientific journal.

How Dr. Devane's research is transforming health care

The field of interventional radiology, and more specifically interventional oncology, is rapidly evolving to improve patient care with modern technology and minimally invasive techniques. Dr. Devane believes the future of cancer care, especially with liver tumors, will involve a combination of system therapy (medical oncology) and liver directed therapy (interventional oncology). His primary areas of interest are oncology, medical device design, and liver disease, and his research seeks to improve outcomes in patients with cancer and liver disease.
