Swedish provides the highest standard of minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures performed in our state-of-the-art Interventional Radiology suites.
Our interventional radiologists are board certified physicians with additional advanced training in minimally invasive, targeted treatments performed using imaging to guide them. They use their expertise in X-rays, CT, ultrasound and other medical imaging technologies to guide small instruments such as catheter tubes through the blood vessels or other pathways. Diseases are treated through the skin versus through open surgery. Interventional radiology procedures are generally easier for the patient because they involve small incisions, minimal pain and shorter recovery times.
