ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES

 Interventional Radiologists are at the cutting-edge interface of medical innovation and can integrate multiple imaging modalities with advanced technologies to deliver minimally invasive care for patients.  These technologies include imaging equipment (i.e. fluoroscopic machines which use x-rays, ultrasound machines that use soundwaves), machines that can cause focal tissue destruction (i.e. radiofrequency ablation, cryoablation, microwave ablation, soundwave/HIFU ablation), equipment that can be deployed in blood vessels and luminal structures (i.e. particles, coils, filters, stents) and software programs that help guide interventions (i.e. fusion software for target localization or vessel mapping software for target vessel selection).
