Interventional radiologists (IRs) are doctors who specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments performed using imaging for guidance.
By combining their expertise in innovative diagnostic radiology and harnessing the power of advanced imaging (ultrasound, x-rays, CT, or MRI scans and other innovative methods), interventional radiologists can see inside your body and treat complex conditions — even cardiovascular disease, cancer and benign tumors — less invasively and with unprecedented precision.
IRs can also provide intravenous long-term access points such as Port and PICC lines for delivery of intravenous treatment by your oncologists or infectious disease physicians.
As a result, interventional radiology can reduce the length of hospital stays, minimize potential complications, and save lives.
The interventional radiologists at Lake Medical Imaging are board-certified fellowship-trained and have added qualifications in interventional techniques.
In the office or in the hospital, patients can expect to receive the same excellent care. The IRs and their staff are dedicated to helping their patients win the battle against disease.
