Count on the interventional radiology professionals at Montage Health to put you at ease and accurately perform your procedure.
What is interventional radiology?
Interventional radiology (IR) is a specialized type of radiology that helps doctors diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions.
Your doctor will perform an IR procedure using needles or catheters (thin, hollow tubes) and medical images generated from:
Imaging technology lets your radiologist create images of the inside of your body. These images guide your doctor to perform precise, minimally invasive procedures.
Minimally invasive techniques
IR technology and minimally invasive techniques cause less stress to your body than traditional, or open, surgery. Because your procedure uses smaller incisions, you’ll benefit from less pain, risk of complications, and a shorter recovery time.
