Interventional Radiology


Inter­ven­tion­al Radi­ol­o­gy (IR) is a radi­a­tion sub-spe­cial­ty that uses min­i­mal­ly inva­sive pro­ce­dures to diag­nose and treat a wide range of con­di­tions. Pro­ce­dures are per­formed by board-cer­ti­fied physi­cians who have spe­cial­ized train­ing in direct­ing tiny instru­ments into the body through a small nick in the skin. Using the lat­est tech­nolo­gies in live X‑ray (flu­o­roscopy), CT and ultra­sound, the IR physi­cian is able to look” inside the body while nav­i­gat­ing the nec­es­sary instru­ments to the prop­er location.

Since there are no large inci­sions, IR pro­ce­dures typ­i­cal­ly result in less pain, less risk and short­er recov­ery times com­pared to tra­di­tion­al surgery. Thanks to advanced tech­nolo­gies and our col­lab­o­ra­tive team of IR doc­tors, nurs­es and tech­nol­o­gists, min­i­mal­ly inva­sive IR pro­ce­dures that once seemed impos­si­ble are now a real­i­ty for our patients.
