Interventional radiology is continually changing the way we practice medicine.
Sometimes called the surgery of the 21st century, interventional radiology
allows doctors to treat a variety of medical disorders without surgery.
For the patient, this results in procedures that are generally less costly
and less traumatic, involve smaller incisions, less pain and shorter hospital
stays. Doctors trained in interventional radiology use x-rays and other
imaging techniques to "see" inside the body while they guide
narrow tubes or catheters and other very small instruments through the
blood vessels and other pathways of the body to the site of a problem.
Physicians at Bozeman Health perform a variety of interventional radiology
procedures to bring you the latest advancements in medical technology.
The Vascular Lab at Bozeman Health is technologically advanced facility
that allows cardiologists and radiologists to perform a vast array of
endovascular procedures. These minimally invasive procedures use miniature
catheter–based guided imaging to diagnose and treat many medical
disorders without surgery. In some cases, noninvasive interventional procedures
can help eliminate the need for inpatient hospitalization.
