Interventional Radiology

Minimally invasive, image-guided procedures 

Interventional radiology helps diagnose and treat conditions using minimally invasive, image-guided procedures. 

For you, that means:

  • Very small incisions
  • Less trauma to your body
  • Less bleeding and pain
  • Less risk of infection
  • Faster recovery

Our experts in minimally invasive procedures diagnose and treat many conditions. Some of these procedures involve making very small incisions in your upper leg. Your doctor then threads thin hollow tube (catheter) 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.

Our Interventional Radiology Services

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