Interventional radiology (IR) is a medical specialty that performs minimally invasive diagnosis and treatments, using radiologic imaging to guide the procedure. Interventional radiology treatments have become the primary method of care for a variety of conditions, offering less risk, less pain and less recovery time, compared to open surgery.
Interventional radiologists use x-rays, CT, ultrasound and other imaging to navigate small instruments, like catheters, through blood vessels and organs to diagnose and treat a variety of diseases.
Examples of IR procedures offered at Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital include:
- Gastrointestinal tract
- Urinary tract
- Venous access
- IVC filter
