The Interventional Radiology Section at Loyola University Medical center specializes in minimally invasive, targeted treatments utilizing X-ray, MRI, ultrasound and other imaging modalities. Diseases are treated using the least invasive methods possible. For instance, Interventional Oncology is a growing specialty within Interventional Radiology where treatments can be delivered directly to a tumor with minimal effect on adjacent tissue.
Many conditions that once required surgery can now be treated less invasively by interventional radiologists. These minimally invasive treatments offer less risk, less pain and less recovery time when compared to open surgery.
The mission of the Interventional Radiology section is to provide the highest quality, evidence based, minimally invasive care possible in a compassionate patient centered setting while providing educational and research opportunities for house staff and medical students.
