Interventional Radiology

Our interventional radiology teams have helped thousands of people avoid surgery by performing minimally-invasive procedures for a variety of conditions.

What is interventional radiology?

Interventional radiology (IR) is a subspecialty of radiology that uses imaging techniques like X-ray and ultrasound to guide small tools into the body to diagnose and treat disease. Our interventional radiologists are board-certified doctors who have completed at least six years of specialized training after medical school.

Guided by imaging, radiologists can follow the flow of injected dye to locate problems such as a tumor or clot. Interventional radiology procedures also can open blocked vessels, dissolve blood clots, deliver cancer treatment and more.

Benefits of interventional radiology treatments include:

  • Lower risk of complications
  • Less pain
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • May eliminate the need for general anesthesia or hospitalization.

Additionally, IR can provide treatment options if you have been diagnosed with an inoperable condition.
