Kadlec Clinic - Interventional Radiology
Fri: 8 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
At Kadlec Clinic - Interventional Radiology, our providers have extensive knowledge of minimally invasive procedures, the vascular system and internal organs. Interventional radiology, or image-guided surgery, is a sub-specialty of radiology. Interventional radiologists use their expertise in X-rays, computed tomography (CT), ultrasound and other medical imaging technologies to guide small instruments such as catheter tubes through the blood vessels or other pathways.
Many procedures that once required open surgery can now be treated non-surgically. Interventional radiology procedures generally involve small incisions, minimal pain, reduced risk of infection and shorter recovery times.
Our physicians are happy to see you with a referral from your doctor.
Our board-certified radiologists use their expertise in guided imagery to insert small tools, such as catheters and wires, into blood vessels to treat many conditions, including:
- Compression fracture
- Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
- Disorders of liver, kidneys and other organs
- Malignant neoplasm of the liver
- Pelvic pain
- Peripheral vascular diseases
- Pulmonary embolism
- Renal cancer
- Stricture of the arteries
- Varicocele (enlargement of veins near testicles)
- Vascular malformations
Our interventional radiologists offer minimally invasive procedures using image guidance. Some of these procedures are diagnostic (such as an angiogram), while others are for treatment purposes (such as an angioplasty). Images are used to direct tiny instruments through the body to the diseased area. These procedures include:
- Aortic angioplasty
- Cardiac ablation
- Cardiac catheterization
- Carotid artery angioplasty
- Embolization of fibroids
- Renal artery angiogram
- Treatment for blood clots
- Tumor ablation
