Minimally Invasive Image Guided Procedures
Interventional Radiologists are physicians who are specially trained to perform minimally invasive image-guided surgery. Using guidance, such as ultrasound, CT and fluoroscopy, Interventional Radiologists guide catheters through the vascular system to treat common disease or tumors directly at the source. In general, these procedures are easier for people to tolerate than conventional surgery because of smaller incisions, less pain and shorter hospital stays.
