Vascular and Non-Vascular Interventional Radiology Procedures
Using fluoroscopy, radiologists perform image-guided vascular and non-vascular interventional procedures on the entire body from head to toe. Using computed tomography (CT) and ultrasound, radiologists perform image-guided non-vascular interventional procedures on the entire body from head to toe. Images are viewable and can be analyzed on MIRADA, Medical XD, Siemens MMWP, DATAQUANT and McKesson PACS.
Facilities, Technical Capabilities, and Limitations
- There are four angiographic fluoroscopy suites for endovascular, biliary, urinary and other non-vascular interventions available for human research.
- There is one scanner used for non-vascular interventions (e.g., biopsies) available for human research.
- All units produce high-quality digital images.
- Images are viewable and archived on the Enterprise-wide McKesson PACS; CDs/DVDs can be created as needed.
- Radiology reports are viewable through SCM/AEHR and can be printed as needed.
