Interventional Radiology

Northwest Hospitalís interventional radiology department utilizes many non-surgical, minimally invasive treatments as alternatives to open surgical procedures. Interventional radiology procedures are generally easier for the patient because they involve small incisions, minimal pain and shorter recovery times.

Interventional radiologists use their expertise in X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans, ultrasound, and other medical imaging technology to guide small instruments, such as catheter tubes, through the blood vessels or other pathways to treat medical conditions, rather than open surgery.

Examples of interventional radiology procedures include vertebroblasty, kyphoplasty, radio frequency ablation of tumors, angiography, balloon angioplasty and stenting to open clogged blood vessels, uterine fibroid embolization, spinal pain injections, and needle biopsy, among others.
