What is Interventional Radiology?
Interventional radiology (also known as IR) is the minimally invasive,
image-guided treatment of medical conditions that once required open surgery.
By harnessing the power of advanced imaging (ultrasound, X-rays, CAT scans,
MRI scans and other innovative methods), interventional radiologists can
see inside your body and treat complex conditions - even cardiovascular
disease and cancer - less invasively and with unprecedented precision.
Interventional radiologists are on the front lines of clinical advances
and use of the latest image-guided technologies. They are board-certified
physicians who are trained in both radiology and minimally invasive therapies.
At North Oaks Health System, you have access to a complete suite of minimally
invasive alternatives to surgery for cases when interventional radiology
procedures are an option. We offer exceptional expertise and the latest
technologies for angiography, embolizations, neurological procedures and others.
These treatments offer less risk, less pain and shorter recovery time for
our patients and often deliver the same or better results without surgical
risks and long hospital stays.
