Interventional Radiology

Interventionalradiology is responsible for all the image-guided procedures in the Radiology and Imaging Sciences within the Clinical Center. Interventional radiology services are crucial to care and treatment of patients throughout the Clinical Center and NIH.

The NIH has recently completed a state-of-the-art IR suite of the future including a one-of-a-kind combination Angio/CT suite with device tracking, CT-integrated robotics, and multimodality fusion. The Angio/CT interventional suite will have a 256 slice multidetector CT scanner installed in 2009.

The image-guided therapy section has a minimally-invasive, image-guided oncology initiative that includes basic bench, in vivo, engineering, and clinical research, combining multimodality electromagnetic tracking and on-line navigation tools to improve accuracy and outcome. Other areas of clinical activity in image-guided therapy include heat activated targeted drug delivery, image-guided ablation with RFA, microwave, or HIFU, percutaneous injection gene therapy, serial biopsy, thrombolytic therapy and Interventional Oncology
