What’s Interventional Radiology?

Interventional and neurointerventional radiologists diagnose and treat illnesses and injuries without surgery. They use imaging technology to guide thin, flexible tubes, called catheters, and small instruments through blood vessels and organs. Then, they deliver highly effective, targeted treatments. Interventional radiology also includes options for transfusion-free medicine that include embolization, chemoembolization, radio nucleotide embolization.
