The thoracic/interventional radiologist team at Methodist Hospital specializes in disease diagnosis as well as the treatment of the patient. They treat an ever-widening range of conditions inside the body by using minimally invasive techniques. These procedures involve the use of X-ray and imaging techniques such as CT scanners, MRI scanners, and ultrasound to thread small instruments or tools such as catheters or wires into the blood vessels to treat a variety of medical conditions. Interventional radiology offers an alternative to the surgical treatment of many conditions and in some cases, can eliminate the need for hospitalization.
