What can Interventional Oncology do for cancer patients?
Interventional oncology procedures provide minimally invasive targeted treatment of cancer. The benefits of using image guidance are that it minimizes the possibility of injuring healthy organs during the procedures. IO employs state-of-the art advanced imaging technology live in the form of X-ray (angiography), ultrasound, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to help guide tiny catheters or needles navigate through the arteries, blood vessels or directly through the skin to the targeted cancer with ease. Such minimally invasive techniques offer a precise and effective treatment solution for some cancers. These procedures can be performed in our offices so that patients can return home immediately following treatment without the need to stay in a hospital overnight.
