MD Imaging has a team of 5 dedicated interventional radiologists all of whom are fellowship trained in Interventional Radiology. In addition, each radiologist is Board Certified with the American Board of Radiology and has earned a C.A.Q. (certificate of added qualification) in Vascular and Interventional Radiology from the same board. Our interventional radiologists stay current with all leading-edge expertise in the exciting advancements of interventional radiology.
Interventional radiologists are physicians who diagnose and treat patients with X-ray guided techniques that are often safer and more cost effective, and require a shorter recovery time than conventional surgery.
This is a special type of radiology, performed by interventional radiologists, who are specifically trained to diagnose and treat conditions using small catheter & instrumentation, while watching their progress on X-ray or other imaging equipment.
Interventional radiology is performed by creating a very small nick in the skin, usually about the size of a pencil tip where catheter are inserted allowing access through blood vessels & other pathways of the body to the problem site. These types of treatments are generally easier for the patient than surgery because they usually involve no surgical incisions, often, there is less pain and a shorter hospital stay.
