Interventional Radiology

Interventional radiology provides minimally invasive image-guided diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of conditions and diseases. By using catheters (thin tubes that are inserted into the body), interventional radiologists are able to treat many conditions that once required open surgery. Interventional radiologists provide a broad range of minimally invasive procedures, which at provide effective care while minimizing patients' risks and improving recovery times in comparison to traditional surgeries.

Interventional radiologists use imaging technology (such as X-rays, CT, ultrasound and MRI) to map the patient's body and precisely plan surgery. The doctors then perform procedures through small incisions rather than through open surgery. See more about interventional radiology at the Johns Hopkins Interventional Radiology website.

Procedures performed at Sibley Memorial Hospital include:

  • Angiography
  • Angioplasty and stent placement
  • Cancer: chemoembolization, radioembolization and ablation
  • Deep vein thrombosis treatment
  • Gastrostomy (feeding tubes)
  • Hypertension and end-stage renal disease
  • Infertility: fallopian tube recannulization
  • IVC Filters: placement and removal (including complex)
  • Liver disease: diagnostic and therapeutic
  • Needle biopsy
  • Pain: therapeutic injections
  • Peripheral arterial disease: diagnosis and treatment
  • Pulmonary embolism: treatment
  • Renal failure: hemodialysis access management
  • Trauma: embolization
  • Uterine fibroid embolization
  • Urinary tract interventions
  • Varicoceles and male infertility
  • Venous access catheters
  • Vertebroplasty/kyphoplasty
