Interventional Radiology

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.

For you, that means:

  • Very small incisions, minimal scarring
  • Less trauma to your body
  • Less bleeding and pain
  • Less risk of infection
  • Faster recovery
  • Savings, often costs less than traditional surgery
