Interventional Radiology is a subspecialty of radiology that is offered at Roane Medical Center in which minimally invasive procedures are performed using image guidance. The concept behind IR is to diagnose or treat pathology with the most minimally invasive techniques possible. IR procedures can reduce infection rates, recovery times, and shorten hospital stays.
