What is Interventional Radiology?

Interventional radiology is a sub-specialty of radiology that thrives under highly trained, specialized radiologists who perform minimally-invasive procedures by placing catheters, stents and stent grafts through tiny incisions (nicks) in the skin and then scan the area of interest using medical imaging as guidance such as x-ray, ultrasound or CT. This aids in disease diagnosis and treatment, often preventing more invasive or aggressive procedures and treatments. Radiology Associates of New Hartford performs interventional radiology procedures at Mohawk Valley Vascular Center on the St. Luke’s campus of Faxton-St. Luke’s Healthcare in Utica.
