At TriStar Southern Hills, our Interventional Radiologists utilize many minimally invasive, targeted treatments as alternatives to traditional surgical procedures. Used to treat a wide variety of medical conditions, these procedures are performed with local anesthesia and intravenous sedations and are guided by radiological imaging techniques such as x-rays, MRI, fluoroscopy, ultrasound and CT (computerized tomography).
Advantages of Interventional Radiology:
- Most procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis or require only a short hospital stay
- General anesthesia usually is not required.
- Risk, pain and recovery time are often significantly reduced
Our imaging staff provides diagnostic/fluoroscopic radiology, ultrasound, computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nuclear medicine, in addition to interventional special procedures and other specialized services.
