Vascular and Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology (IR) is a triad of diagnostic imaging, minimally invasive procedures, and patient-based clinical care. IR uses imaging to navigate anatomy and treat a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions using minimally invasive tools such as needles, wires, and catheters. Interventional radiologists are experts in treating diseases in almost every body organ and perform a wide range of procedures such as percutaneous biopsy, abscess drainage, angioplasty, tumor ablation, chemoembolization, radioembolization, aneurysm coiling, thrombectomy, and Transjugular Intrahepatic Portosystemic Shunt (TIPS). Minimally invasive procedures offer safe alternative solutions to complex medical problems, decrease risk, recovery time, and hospital stay.
