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.
