UT Southwestern Medical Center’s board-certified interventional radiologists specialize in the use of minimally invasive, image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat a variety of diseases, offering patients fewer risks and shorter recovery times.
We use the latest imaging technologies to conduct more than 5,500 innovative surgeries each year.
Specialty Expertise and Training
Interventional radiology involves using minimally invasive, image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat various diseases. Our interventional radiologists detect and treat everything from cancer and heart disease to varicose veins and women’s health conditions.
In addition to the training that all radiologists receive, our interventional radiologists have advanced fellowship training in interventional radiology, plus extensive real-worldexperience.
Conditions We Treat With Interventional Radiology
Interventional radiology is used to treat a variety of conditions. At UT Southwestern, we frequently use these procedures to treat many types of tumors of the liver, kidneys, pancreas, and lungs, as well as metastatic cancer in the liver and lungs.
In addition, our interventional radiologists are experts in the treatment of many women’s health disorders, urologic and biliary obstructions, and gastrointestinal problems. We offer central venous access and dialysis maintenance with readily available appointments for these procedures.
Diagnosis and Treatment
Our interventional imaging techniques include:
- Catheter-based angiography
- Computed tomography (CT)
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- State-of- the-art fluoroscopy (real-time X-ray imaging)
These advanced technologies allow our physicians to visualize and treat internal organs with minimal disruption to the body and overall functionality.
