Our Imaging Services

Interventional Radiology

We use small, specialized instruments combined with advanced imaging systems to perform image-guided procedures.

Interventional radiology uses advanced imaging technology to guide small, specialized instruments in minimally invasive procedures. These procedures are performed for patients who have a wide variety of medical conditions that in the past would have required open surgery.

Neurosurgeon Dr. Howard Riina and his team perform a procedure.

Interventional radiology is used to: 

  • open blockages inside arteries and veins
  • block off blood vessels that nourish tumors
  • treat cancerous tumors using focused heat and freezing
  • drain blocked organ systems such as the liver, gallbladder, and kidneys
  • treat uterine fibroids
  • perform biopsies that would otherwise require surgery

Many interventional techniques and devices currently used around the world were pioneered at NYU Langone, including the instruments used in angioplasty and stenting; endovascular grafting to repair abdominal aneurysms; and embolization techniques used to treat many benign and cancerous conditions. 

At NYU Langone, we emphasize a team approach among our medical and surgical specialists to provide the least invasive and most effective treatment for our patients.
