An interventional radiologist performs a procedure

Interventional radiology uses catheters (small, hollow tubes) with wires and small instruments inserted through your blood vessels, usually starting in a thigh artery.

Imaging technologies like CT, MRI, fluoroscopy and ultrasound guide the catheter to the exact spot in the body for treatment.

Compared to open surgery, minimally invasive treatments using interventional radiology offer reduced risk, pain and recovery times.

University of Maryland Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine provides vascular interventional and interventional neuroradiology procedures.

Vascular Interventional Radiology

Vascular interventional radiology is care for conditions that affect the arteries and veins. Procedures include uterine fibroid embolization and NanoKnife IRE.

Interventional Neuroradiology

Specialists in interventional neuroradiology have extensive clinical and research experience. We provide expert diagnosis and treatment of adult and pediatric neurovascular diseases. These include treatment for cerebral aneurysms and endovascular repair for hemorrhagic stroke.
