Interventional & Vascular

A key strength of Carolina Radiology is our ability to tailor the expertise of our team to the specific needs of our partner sites. Our interventional radiologists provide the following services:

Interventional angiography, vascular, and drainage procedures—less-invasive methods of diagnosing or treating disorders of, or facilitating frequent access, to the blood vessels. Interventional angiography and vascular procedures are performed for a wide range of purposes, including:

Brain attack—imaging blood vessels in or leading to the brain to confirm or rule out, assess, or treat a stroke

Stroke prevention—restoring blood flow or repairing weak areas of blood when abnormalities that increase stroke risk have been found

Abdominal aortic aneurysm treatment—repairing the abdominal aorta to reduce risk of potentially life-threatening internal bleeding

Vascular access—installing ports for patients whose veins need to be accessed frequently for injections, intravenous treatments, or dialysis

Drainage procedures—installing tubes to drain excess fluid from organs and body cavities in patients undergoing treatment for cancer or other disorders

Interventional neuroradiology—a radiology subspecialty focused on minimally invasive diagnostic and treatment procedures for disorders and injuries of the head, neck, and spine

Pain management—minimally-invasive procedures designed to relieve pain, including image-guided joint injections, nerve blocks, and spine surgeries
