Intervention Radiology

Interventional Radiology

Interventional radiology, also known as Image-Guided Surgery, is a specialty of radiology in which image-guided procedures are used to diagnose and treat a multitude of diseases throughout the body including:

 

  • Cancerinterventional-radiology
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis
  • End Stage Renal Disease
  • Hypertension
  • Infertility
  • Liver Disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Pelvic Pain
  • Peripheral Arterial Disease
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Smoking
  • Stroke and Carotid Artery Disease
  • Trauma
  • Uterine Fibroids
  • Varicose Veins



Today many conditions that once required surgery can be treated non-surgically by interventional radiologists. Interventional radiology treatments offer less risk, less pain and less recovery time compared to open surgery.

What is an Interventional Radiologist?
Interventional radiologists are board-certified physicians who specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments. They offer the most in-depth knowledge of the least invasive treatments available coupled with diagnostic and clinical experience across all specialties. They use X-rays, MRI and other imaging to advance a catheter in the body, usually in an artery, to treat at the source of the disease non-surgically. As the inventors of angioplasty and the catheter-delivered stent, which were first used in the legs to treat peripheral arterial disease, interventional radiologists pioneered minimally invasive modern medicine.

Silver Cross is fortunate to have three interventional radiologists on staff:
