Changing the direction of radiology from diagnosis to treatment
Interventional radiology (IR) is a subspecialty that uses imaging techniques to diagnose and treat numerous diseases and conditions. These non-surgical and targeted procedures are less invasive and pose fewer risks than open surgical procedures. Recovery is generally quicker too.
Established in 1987, our interventional radiology section is one the largest and most comprehensive IR services in the nation. Approximately 40,000 IR procedures are performed each year. Our interventional radiologists are board-certified in diagnostic radiology with additional expertise in vascular and interventional radiology. They diagnose and treat malfunctions in most of the body's systems including blood vessels, liver, kidneys, lungs, stomach and intestines.
