Care & Treatment

  • Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology

Interventional radiology is used to diagnose and treat many conditions throughout the body, including the vascular system, urinary tract, intestinal tract, skeletal system, chest and abdomen. Interventional radiology is the term for many types of specialized procedures performed using image guidance such as CT, ultrasound, fluoroscopy and MRI.

Interventional Radiology Procedures


A procedure to widen a narrowed or totally blocked blood vessel.

Chemoembolizations and Embolizations

A combination of chemotherapy and a procedure called embolization to treat cancer, most often of the liver. In chemoembolization, anti-cancer drugs are inserted directly into the blood vessel feeding a cancerous tumor. This blocks the blood vessel, trapping the chemotherapy in the tumor.


This is a minimally invasive alternative to surgery. An embolization prevents blood flow to an area of the body, which can effectively shrink a tumor or block an aneurysm.

Intestinal Procedures

Including biliary or liver drain patients; gallbladder drains; biopsies of the liver, pancreas and abdomen; feeding tube placements and abscess drainages.


A surgical procedure to stop the pain caused by a spinal fracture, stabilize the bone and restore some or all of the lost vertebral body height due to the compression fracture.


An outpatient procedure to treat compression fractures in the spine. This new, advanced procedure stops pain caused by fractures in the vertebrae, offering immediate relief to patients.

Stent Placements

A stent is placed in a vein to keep it open for blood flow.

Tenex TX Treatment

Removes the source of plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendon, knee, elbow and shoulder pain, which is scarred and damaged tissue, without disturbing the surrounding healthy tissue. This allows individuals to regain their active lifestyles.


This procedure removes blood clots. The interventional radiology team uses medications to dissolve the clot and restore the necessary blood flow. Vena caval filtration is used to prevent clots from entering the heart, lungs and brain.


tPA works by dissolving the clot and improving blood flow to the part of the brain being deprived of blood flow. This procedure is used to treat strokes.

Urinary Procedures

Including biopsies, nephrostomies (a look at the kidneys and its functions), internal drainages, abscess drain placements, tube maintenance and retrievals.

Vascular Access Procedures

Often done in interventional radiology to provide quick and easy vein access for medications and dialysis.

Vascular Procedures

Including diagnostic angiography or viewing the vessels of the body.

Varicose veins

Varicose veins are enlarged veins, generally in your legs or feet. For many, it is a mild irritation and cosmetic concern. But, for others varicose veins can cause ongoing pain and lead to serious problems. Procedures to eliminate irritation or cosmetic concerns involve a laser treatment or radiofrequency ablation. 

Other Procedures

Vertebral (spine) and other bone biopsies, joint aspirations and arthrograms.
