The Interventional Radiology (IR) program at WVU uses minimally invasive techniques to diagnose and treat many diseases and conditions. Our Physicians who specialize in IR use advanced imaging – like CT scans, X-rays and ultrasound – to view and guide instruments through blood vessels to deliver therapy at the source of the problem.
The benefits of minimally invasive IR procedures include:
- Fewer complications than open surgery
- Less pain
- Less bleeding
- Quick recovery
- Often performed on an outpatient basis
