Advancements in Interventional Radiology
Significant advancements in interventional radiology are providing new diagnostic and treatment options for physicians and patients. Using real–time imaging for guidance, Methodist West Houston physicians are able to use catheter–based instruments and perform precise endovascular procedures. Minimally invasive procedures of this type reduce patient recovery time and shorten hospital stays. An example of how the latest interventional radiology technology is used to enhance diagnostic precision is the MRI–guided biopsy.
