We use cutting-edge technology and advanced imaging systems to perform image-guided medical procedures.
Interventional radiologists at NYU Langone are leaders in the use of minimally invasive surgical techniques that provide patients with an alternative to open surgery. This approach allows complex procedures to be performed in the arteries, veins, and almost every organ in the body.
How Interventional Radiology Works
Interventional radiologists are doctors who use X-ray, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, or CT scan imaging technology to guide small, specialized instruments through the body, allowing them to treat a wide variety of conditions affecting the blood vessels and organs. The techniques allow targeted therapies and procedures to be done quickly and safely, resulting in less discomfort, quicker recovery, and better results compared to open procedures.
At NYU Langone, our physician team of interventional radiologists is supported by a group of specialized nurses and technologists.
Interventional Radiology Treatments
The list of medical conditions that can be treated by interventional radiology is constantly growing. Interventional radiology procedures can be used to treat cancer and improve blood circulation, among other things.
Our interventional radiologists provide the following treatments:
- intra-arterial therapies including transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) and Y90 radioembolization to treat liver cancer
- thermal ablation to treat non-small cell lung cancer, liver cancer, kidney cancer, and soft tissue cancers
- balloon angioplasty, atherectomy, and stenting to treat peripheral artery disease
- limb salvage procedures to treat critical limb ischemia, which causes chronic foot pain or ulcers that do not heal
- balloon angioplasty and stenting to treat chronic venous disease
- inferior vena cava filter and catheter-directed thrombolysis to treat deep vein thrombosis
- catheter-directed thrombolysis to treat pulmonary embolism by delivering clot-busting medicine directly to the clot
- embolization to restrict blood flow as a way to treat uterine fibroids, pelvic congestion syndrome, and varicoceles
