At Sentara, we offer specialized interventional radiology services to provide our patients with more minimally invasive treatment options.
Interventional radiology uses minimally invasive procedures guided by images of the body to diagnose and treat numerous types of medical conditions. The images provide a "road map" that allows the radiologist to guide tiny instruments, such as needles or small catheters, through the body to the area of interest.
