Interventional radiology

Image-Guided Procedures

Interventional radiologists are physicians who offer minimally-invasive, image-guided procedures for patients who may otherwise require surgery or have few other treatment options available. Most elective procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis, though some do require a short hospital stay. Risk, pain and recovery time are often significantly reduced compared to surgery.
