WVU Medicine interventional radiologists specialize in using advanced imaging to guide medical instruments through the blood vessels and deliver therapy at the source of the problem. Procedures are performed through small incisions with catheters and wires that are about the size of a piece of spaghetti, preserving surrounding tissue and avoiding a large, open incision.

Interventional radiology techniques have fewer complications than open surgery and are often performed on an outpatient basis. Patients experience less bleeding, reduced pain, and a quicker recovery.

Evaluation and Treatment

WVU Medicine interventional radiologists have extensive training in the diagnosis and treatment of vascular diseases and work with other specialists to determine the best treatment for each individual patient. Our minimally invasive techniques make it easier to examine and treat your medical condition. Diagnosis methods could include procedures, like angiography to look for blockage and narrowing of the arteries using x-ray imaging or needle biopsy to take a tissue sample and provide diagnosis without surgery.
