Interventional radiology uses minimally invasive techniques and imaging guidance to perform procedures that can replace conventional surgery. The Vascular and Interventional Radiology Section at Elliot Hospital provides the full range of interventional radiology care for patients, including diagnostic arteriography, renal and peripheral vascular interventions, biliary, gastrointestinal and genitourinary interventions, venous access procedures, embolization, kyphoplasty and pain management procedures.
Our goal is to provide personalized patient care. Our radiology nurses will contact you when you are booked for a procedure to provide education and information. The radiology nurses and Interventional Vascular Radiology Section may be contacted by calling 663-4150.
