Interventional Radiology

Minimally invasive, image-guided procedures 

Interventional radiology helps diagnose and treat certain conditions using minimally invasive, image-guided procedures. That means you have very small incisions, less trauma to your body, less bleeding and pain, less risk of infection and faster recovery. Often, you don’t even have to stay in the hospital overnight. 

Our Approach to Interventional RadiologySlice

IU Health interventional radiologists are experts in minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat various conditions. Many interventional procedures involve making very small incisions in your upper leg and threading a catheter (thin hollow tube) to the area of your body to be treated – your heart, liver, spine or abdomen. Doctors insert special instruments through the catheter to perform the intervention.

Your doctors can then use previously obtained images of you, MRI, X-rays or ultrasound to guide them during the procedure.

Interventional procedures range from laser treatment of varicose veins to life-threatening deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
