Dr. Sweeney is dedicated to the advancement in the care and treatment of cancer patients through minimally invasive, image-guided techniques.  She is an active member of multiple medical societies, including the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR), American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS), American College of Radiology (ACR), American Board of Radiology (ABR), American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIO).  She serves as a reviewer for The Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (JVIR) and the Journal of Oncology Practice (JOP).  She is an investigator/co-investigator on several phase I/II and phase III multicenter randomized clinical trials.  Her research interests include development of novel targeted and minimally invasive image-guided cancer therapies.  Dr. Sweeney’s clinical interests are image-guided therapies as part of a multidisciplinary approach to provide the most effective treatment for patients with cancer while maintaining an optimal quality of life.  She is specialized in minimally invasive interventional oncology procedures.  Her expertise includes percutaneous  ablation of primary and metastatic liver and renal and bone tumors (microwave ablation, radiofrequency ablation, cryoablation and irreversible electroporation), embolization of tumors (bland embolization, chemoembolization and radioembolization), other minimally invasive procedures to aid in obtaining diagnosis and treating side effects and complications resulting from cancer involving  the hepatobiliary, genitourinary, musculoskeletal, gastrointestinal and vascular systems.
