About the exam

Interventional radiology is a subspecialty of radiology that allows minimally invasive treatments under imaging guidance. With advances in technology and the increasing availability of high quality imaging equipment, interventional radiology is able to offer a growing number of treatment options to patients and their physicians.
Interventional radiologists are specialists trained in radiology and minimally invasive procedures. This expertise in imaging techniques allows them to guide small catheters (tubes) and guidewires into blood vessels or other organ pathways to treat many diseases. This system therefore saves time and is less invasive for the human body. Please send us your requests for consultation by FAX at (514) 252-3547.
