Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology is a medical sub-specialty of radiology utilizing minimally-invasive image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system.

Common Procedures

Arteriovenous Malformations (AVM)

Blood vessel abnormalities in the brain or elsewhere. If untreated, AVMs can rupture, causing life-threatening bleeding. Interventional radiologists can often treat these abnormalities without surgery by guiding thin catheters to the site and injecting a substance that blocks the supply of blood to the affected blood vessels.

Billiary Drainage and Stenting

Uses a stent (small mesh tube) to open up blocked ducts and allow bile to drain from the liver.

Gastrostomy Tube

Feeding tube inserted into the stomach for patients who are unable to take sufficient food by mouth.
