Interventional Radiology


What is interventional radiology?

Interventional radiologists, or vascular radiologists, are physicians who specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments using X-ray, ultrasound, MRI and other image-guided methods. Today, many conditions that once required surgery can be treated less-invasively by interventional radiologists. Because interventional radiology encompasses every organ in the body, the illnesses it targets are as diverse as varicose veins, thrombolysis and urinary tract obstruction.
