Interventional Radiology (IR) offers prostate artery embolization (PAE), a minimally invasive outpatient treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) symptoms. IR physicians insert a catheter in the wrist to access the venous system and block the blood supply to the prostate. This causes the prostate to shrink, and improves symptoms. Patients return home a few hours after the procedure. PAE is offered at both Green Spring Station and JHH.
Thank you for your collaboration as we rolled out a new urgency level for ordering imaging exams. A reminder that ordering physicians can now choose the ASAP option to indicate exams that are urgently needed for decision making. The STAT option is still available for exams that have a potential for critical results that could result in harm within hours or days if not treated.
