Interventional Radiology Procedures
A subspecialty of Diagnostic Radiology, Interventional Radiology procedures use image guidance to perform minimally invasive procedures to treat a wide range of diseases.
Using state-of-the-art imaging technology, such as ultrasound and fluoroscopic-guided CT scan suites, we can guide the placement of fine instruments to precisely target tumor sites deep within the body through small skin incisions, and leave healthy tissue unaffected. These procedures are often performed under local anesthesia with intravenous (IV) sedation, and typically do not require general anesthesia.
We tailor novel targeted therapies—such as radiofrequency ablation, trans arterial embolization, trans arterial chemoembolization and trans arterial radioembolization with yttrium-90—to specifically meet the advancing needs of our patients with cancer. We currently offer the interventional radiology procedures listed below.
