Interventional radiologists at use state-of-the-art, minimally invasive procedures to treat a variety of heart and vascular disorders. Using imaging for guidance, interventional radiologists can examine how well blood flows through your arteries and use specialized equipment to open narrowed or blocked blood vessels.
Benefits of interventional radiology techniques include smaller incisions, fewer complications, shorter recovery times and less pain than a traditional, open surgery. Most patients only need conscious sedation for interventional radiology procedures.
Our interventional radiology procedures include:
- Angiography — A catheter-based procedure that uses x-rays and dye to highlight blockages in blood flow.
- Angiojet Thrombectomy — A procedure that uses a tiny device to break up blood clots that cause partial or full obstruction of blood flow in an artery.
- Angioplasty — Tiny catheters, tools and stents are used to open narrowed or blocked blood vessels.
- Aortic Aneurysm Repair — A catheter-based procedure that repairs aortic aneurysms that may rupture and cause problems.
- Coil Embolization — A catheter-based procedure that stops bleeding or abnormal blood flow within an artery.
