Interventional Radiology Procedures


Interventional Radiology is a term that describes an array of minimally invasive procedures that use imaging guidance instead of traditional surgery. They are generally easier for patients because they involve no large incisions, less risk, less pain, and shorter recovery times. CVMC has qualified, board-certified Interventional Radiologists on staff.


Interventional radiology procedures include:

  • Angiography

  • Angioplasty

  • Biliary drainage and stenting

  • Central Venous Access (infusion catheters, tunneled catheters, and Medi-Ports)

  • Chemoembolization

  • Embolization

  • Gastrostomy tube

  • Kyphoplasty

  • Needle biopsy

  • Vascular stenting

  • Thrombolysis

  • Uterine fibroid embolization

  • Varicose vein treatment
