From 24/7 acute stoke care to 64 slice screening capabilities, our team of specialists rely on the latest technology to provide optimal care and outstanding results. IR procedures are typically performed in the hospitals we serve, and include advances in medicine that replace open surgical procedures. IR procedures are generally easier for patients because they involve no large incisions, reduced risk, less pain and have shorter recovery times. Interventional surgical procedures can involve both the vascular and non-vascular systems and may require follow-up clinical visits with the surgeon.
Interventional Radiology Procedures
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with colorectal cancer that has spread (metastasized) to the liver, it is important to learn the facts and evaluate your treatment options. Of the 150,000 Americans diagnosed with colorectal cancer each year, more than 60 percent develop liver tumors. A diagnosis of colorectal liver metastases can be overwhelming, but there is hope.
Scheduling a Procedure
Patients need a referral from their specialist, surgeon or primary care physician for any Interventional Radiology procedure. We also have a clinic to meet patients and review their imaging and management plans in depth. A nurse will contact you to make arrangements for the procedure, answer questions, and notify you of preparation instructions.

Interventional radiologists specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments. They offer in-depth knowledge of the least invasive treatments available coupled with diagnostic and clinical experience across all specialties. Using imaging technology, they are able to treat the source of many diseases non-surgically. As the inventors of angioplasty and the catheter-delivered stent, which were first used in the legs to treat peripheral arterial disease, interventional radiologists pioneered minimally invasive modern medicine. Midwest Radiology has several board certified radiologists who are fellowship trained in percutaneous, under the skin, interventions using guided imaging.
