Interventional Radiology Services
Interventional Radiology is a field of medicine that uses minimally invasive techniques and imaging guidance to perform procedures that can replace conventional surgery. Several advantages to interventional radiology procedures include:
- Most IR procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis.
- Patients undergoing an IR procedure typically do not require general anesthesia, so they retain the ability to breathe on their own, are conscious, and can respond to instructions.
- Outcomes with interventional radiology procedures are equal to or better than outcomes for patients undergoing traditional surgery. IR techniques have proven so effective, they have been adapted to a variety of surgical procedures; in some cases, they have replaced traditional surgery as a treatment option.
