Interventional Oncology

Interventional oncology is a type of cancer care performed by specially trained radiologists called interventional radiologists. They use advanced imaged-guided techniques such as CT, fluoroscopy (live X-ray) or ultrasound to deliver treatment through a small skin puncture.

Interventional oncology targets cancer and/or the pain it causes. These procedures are often used with standard cancer treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation and may reduce pain and/or extend life. For certain types of tumors, interventional oncology procedures can be curative.
