Thank you for helping keep our patients and staff safe.
Interventional radiology (IR) uses the guidance of high-resolution images—typically from CT scans, ultrasound, and X-rays—to perform minimally invasive procedures that both diagnose and treat a variety of health conditions.
IR techniques involve tiny instruments on thin, flexible tubes precisely placed into blood vessels and internal organs through small incisions in the skin.
Because these procedures are less invasive than traditional surgery, you often benefit from less pain and scarring, shorter hospital stays, faster recovery, and a quicker return to the life you love.
The collaborative teams of skilled IR experts at UCHealth lead the field in providing a wide range of interventional radiology services and treatments in areas that include:
Biliary IR. Treats conditions of the biliary system.
Interventional oncology. Treats cancer-related conditions.
Neurointerventional radiology. Treats brain and vascular conditions.
Reproductive IR. Treats fertility and gynecologic issues—including uterine fibroids, pelvic congestion syndrome, and varicoceles—with IR techniques such as embolization.
Spine IR. Treats compression fractures in the spine.
Vascular IR. Treats a wide range of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels—such as aortic root conditions and abdominal or thoracic aneurysms—in collaboration with UCHealth cardiovascular teams.
