Interventional radiology provides minimally invasive treatment for complex conditions

Interventional radiology procedures require a collaboration of interventional radiologists on the medical staff, radiology nurses and radiologic technologists—all trained specialists in their fields.

Interventional radiologists on the medical staff at Baylor Scott & White Health use their expertise in interpreting X-rays, ultrasound, MRI, CT and other diagnostic imaging studies to understand, visualize, diagnose and treat the full scope of a disease. This allows the interventional radiologist to map out the procedure and tailor it to your individual needs.

Condiciones tratadas
