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.
