Juris Medicus has interventional radiologists who are certified by the American Board of Radiology in both Diagnostic Radiology and Vascular and Interventional Radiology.
Interventional radiology (IR) is a medical specialty that performs minimally invasive treatments using radiologic imaging for procedure guidance. Interventional radiology treatments have become the primary method of care for a variety of conditions, offering less risk, less pain, and less recovery time, compared to open surgical procedures.
Interventional radiologists are board-certified, fellowship trained physicians who specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments. They perform image guided procedures, fully interpret the imaging required to guide and monitor response of those procedures, as well as provide the pre and post procedural care for patients receiving image guided surgical procedures.
Interventional radiologists are experts at reading x-rays, ultrasounds, CTs, MRIs, or other imaging and use these studies to guide and navigate small instruments, like catheters and needles, through blood vessels and organs. Examples of treatments administered by interventional radiologists include angioplasty, stenting, thrombolysis, embolization, image-guided thermal ablation, and biopsies. These minimally invasive treatments can cure or alleviate symptoms of vascular disease, stroke, uterine fibroids, or cancer.
In additional to their unique procedural skills, interventional radiologists have had extensive training and expertise in radiation safety, radiation physics, and the biological effects of radiation and injury prevention.
