Interventional radiology uses imaging techniques such as x-ray, CT, ultrasound and MRI in treatments and diagnosis. These treatments are designed to give Adventist Medical Center patients the least invasive technique possible. These minimally invasive options can offer quicker recovery times.
Images are used to direct the care team during an interventional radiology procedure. These images serve as a road map allowing the radiologist to guide instruments through the body to the areas containing disease. Using needles and catheters, interventional radiologists are able to offer a minimally invasive option for many conditions that used to require surgery.
