Interventional Radiology (IR) is a field of medicine that specializes in minimally invasive procedures to treat complex conditions. Our IR experts diagnose and treat conditions involving many parts of the body by using imaging technology such as x-ray, CT and ultrasound as a guide during procedures. Interventional radiology procedures have been described as surgical procedures, but without a scalpel.
