Surgeons with patient

Interventional Radiology (IR or VIR for Vascular Interventional Radiology) is a subspecialty of radiology in which minimally invasive procedures are performed using image guidance (fluoroscopy/X-Ray). IR is used for diagnostic and therapeutic care for a wide variety of vascular and nonvascular conditions throughout the body.

This technique is often an alternative to the surgical treatment of many conditions and can eliminate the need for hospitalization, in some cases. An Interventional Radiologist is a board-certified physician offers the most in-depth knowledge of the least invasive treatments available, coupled with diagnostic and clinical experience across all specialties. They use X-Ray and other imaging to advance a catheter and other small instruments in the body to diagnose or treat the disease, non-surgically. As the inventors of angioplasty and the catheter-delivered stent, Interventional Radiologists pioneered minimally invasive modern medicine.
