Interventional Radiology for Women and Men at Magee-Womens Imaging

Today, many conditions that once required surgery can be treated nonsurgically by interventional radiologists.

Interventional radiologists at Magee-Womens Imaging treat a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Benign tumors including uterine fibroids
  • Malignant tumors leading to liver, kidney, or lung cancer
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Blocked arteries using balloon angioplasty and intravascular stent placement

Compared to open surgery, interventional radiology treatments typically offer less:

  • Risk
  • Pain
  • Recovery time
