What is Interventional Radiology?

Interventional radiology (also known as IR) is the minimally invasive, image-guided treatment of medical conditions that once required open surgery. By harnessing the power of advanced imaging (ultrasound, X-rays, CAT scans, MRI scans and other innovative methods), interventional radiologists can see inside your body and treat complex conditions—even cancer—less invasively and with unprecedented precision.

Interventional radiologists are on the front lines of clinical advances and use of the latest image-guided technologies. They are board-certified physicians who are trained in both radiology and invasive therapies.

Most IR procedures can be performed with just local numbing medicine or under conscious sedation.  Conscious sedation, also known as moderate sedation, is a minimally depressed state-of-mind in which the patient becomes less aware of the treatment being performed but is still able to control breathing, reflexes and able to respond to commands or touch.

Interventional radiologists work across the body to deliver minimally invasive treatments for a variety of conditions. Most of which can be performed on an outpatient basis.
