Vascular and Interventional Radiology is a sub-specialty of radiology where the doctor can perform elaborate procedures to treat diseases, often with little more than a needle puncture to the skin. These procedures are done using ultrasound, CT scan and x-rays to look inside the body rather than performing a major surgery. Treating patients using the minimally invasive techniques minimizes risk to the patient and improves health outcomes. The recovery time is generally rapid. The range of diseases and organs that can be treated in this manner are extensive and constantly evolving, and include systems from head to toe.

Working as a team with other specialists, interventional radiologists help with treatment of cancer, venous and arterial diseases, chronic pain, and bone and joint problems, among many other ailments. These can be accomplished as an outpatient or inpatient service, depending on the complexity of the particular procedure, at either our affiliated Baptist Hospitals or M&S Imaging Centers.
