Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology  

Interventional radiology at North Colorado Medical Center, is a subspecialty of medical imaging in which minimally invasive diagnostic and treatment procedures are performed using image guidance. Tiny catheters and miniature instruments, which are inserted into the body through a small opening in the skin, are guided through a patient’s network of arteries to internally treat conditions.

From cardiology to fetal surgery, interventional radiology is a state-of-the-art alternative to open surgery with such advantages as:

  • Shorter recovery times
  • Less severe side effects
  • Less scarring
  • Usually does not require general anesthesia
  • May provide treatment options for people diagnosed with inoperable conditions, or who otherwise are not candidates for open surgery

Interventional radiologists at North Colorado Medical Center perform a number of diagnostic and treatment procedures including:

  • Uterine Fibroid Embolization
  • Treatment of Peripheral Vascular Disease
  • Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty
  • Endovenous Laser Ablation of Varicose Veins
  • Stenting
  • Catheter Placement
  • Transjugular Intrahepatic Portosystemic Shunt (TIPS)
