Interventional Oncology

Interventional radiology is a critical component of diagnosing and treating many types of cancer and cancer-related complications. Interventional radiology procedures provide targeted, minimally invasive therapies – particularly for cancers that cannot be treated with surgery or chemotherapy to the entire body. These precise, image-guided interventional oncology techniques may be used to:

  • Treat tumors in the liver, kidneys and other organs.
  • Place central venous access devices, which are inserted into large veins to deliver medication.
  • Manage pain and other cancer-related complications such as organ obstruction.

Our interventional radiologists offer a number of therapies that are helping enhance quality-of-life and overall survival for patients with difficult-to-treat cancers. Our treatments often take advantage of special imaging technologies such as ultrasound as well as fluoroscopy, which uses X-rays to create real-time, moving images of structures inside the body.
