Radiology - Interventional

Interventional Radiologists provide services including interpreting the results of examinations, performing certain procedures such as interventional radiology or therapeutic procedures, and consulting with physicians in other specialties. Interventional radiologists may perform minimally invasive, targeted medical treatments using radiologic imaging for procedure guidance. They perform a range of imaging procedures to obtain images of the inside of the body, interpret these images to diagnose injury and disease, and perform a range of medical procedures.

Interventional radiology procedures include treating tumors, taking organ biopsies, or placing stents by inserting tiny instruments and thin plastic tubes into the body via an artery or vein. Radiologic images help guide these tubes and instruments to the exact area where the procedure or treatment is being performed.
