Interventional Radiology Service is a section of the Department of Diagnostic Imaging staffed by Interventional radiologists who are board-certified physicians specialized in minimally invasive, targeted treatments. They offer the most in-depth knowledge of the least invasive treatments available coupled with diagnostic and clinical experience across all specialties. They use X-ray, CT, US and MRI guidance for diagnosis and treatment of many medical conditions. Most procedures are performed by advancing a small catheter in the body, usually in an artery, to treat at the source of the disease non-surgically. Today many conditions that once required surgery can be treated non-surgically by interventional radiologists. Interventional radiology treatments offer less risk, less pain and less recovery time compared to open surgery. Interventional radiology is not a disease or organ specific specialty and it offers options to many conditions. We provide special emphasis and expertise in cancer related interventional treatment.
