Interventional Radiology

ImageCare Centers provides services for interventional radiology in New Jersey. These minimally invasive, image-guided procedures are used to diagnose and treat a wide range of diseases and conditions while also being associated with fewer risks and shorter recovery times. During an interventional radiology procedure, tiny instruments such as small needles, guide wires, and catheters are guided through the skin and blood vessels in order to directly treat the cause of a medical condition.

Interventional radiology is used to detect and treat many diseases and conditions, from cancer and heart disease to varicose veins and kidney stones. Because interventional radiology has made open surgery unnecessary for conditions that used to require it, this practice has become an integral part of medical care. Interventional radiology patients benefit from reduced risks, shorter – or no – hospital stays, lower cost than open surgery, greater comfort, quicker convalescence, and a quicker return to work and other aspects of their daily lives. Additionally, the effectiveness of these procedures is often better than with traditional treatments.

Some conditions that interventional radiology is used to treat include:

Arteries

  • Narrowing of the arteries
  • Aneurysms
  • Bleeding

Veins

  • Blood clots in the lungs
