Interventional Radiology Program

Our Center for Pediatric Interventional Radiology provides a wide range of state-of-the-art, minimally invasive vascular and nonvascular, image-guided diagnostic procedures for children of all ages. We use the latest diagnostic and radiological equipment with features exclusively for pediatric patients, making them safe for even the smallest child.

Interventional Radiology, also called “IR” for short, is a sub-specialty within Radiology that uses X-ray, fluoroscopy and ultrasound imaging to help perform minimally invasive procedures. By using images to guide the procedures, we can diagnose and treat patients in the least invasive way possible to reduce risk and improve outcomes.

These minimally invasive procedures have less pain and less recovery time compared to open surgery. And many IR procedures also reduce the need for surgery completely.

Interventional radiologists are medical doctors who completed an additional six to seven years of special training after graduating from medical school. Our team of highly skilled professionals includes interventional radiologists (pediatric radiologists trained to perform these procedures), radiology technologists and registered nurses.
