Interventional radiology is a subspecialty of radiology where radiologists perform minimally invasive procedures using image guidance. These procedures are usually done with needles, catheters or other minimally invasive instruments that eliminate the need for large incisions.
Inspira’s Approach to Interventional Radiology
Inspira physicians use interventional radiology procedures to make a precision map of the body’s internal complexes. The images provided by the tests generate road maps that allow the interventional radiologist to guide these instruments through the body to the areas containing pain or diseases thus providing treatment.
Types of Interventional Radiology Procedures
Inspira radiologists use a variety of interventional radiology procedures to treat diseases. Some of these procedures include:
- Trans Catheter Minimally Invasive Cancer Treatments
- Percutaneous Nephrostomy
- Dialysis Access Interventions
- Percutaneous Transhepatic Cholangiogram
- Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter Placement (PICC)
- Plueral Effusion
- Transjugular Intrahepatic Portosystemic Shunt (TIPS)
- Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)
- Y-90 Radioembolization
