By combining advanced technology with the fundamentals of patient care, interventional radiologists can treat complex conditions — even cardiovascular disease and cancer — less invasively and with unprecedented precision.
During a procedure, the interventional radiologist uses X-ray, fluoroscopy, computed tomography (CT) or ultrasound images to guide small instruments (catheters) through the vascular system or other pathways percutaneously (through the skin).
Specialty focus areas include:
Interventional Radiology for Cancer Care:
Interventional radiology procedures often replace open surgical procedures, which is a big benefit for patients. Since there is no large incision, there is usually less risk, less pain and a shorter recovery time. Interventional radiology is an important component in many areas of patient care, and the rapidly advancing field continues to offer newer, safer and more comfortable choices for our patients.
In-clinic appointments for consults, procedures and follow up appointments may be available.
