Interventional radiologists, technologists and nurses are involved in the treatment of the patient, as well as the diagnosis of disease. They treat an ever-widening range of conditions from outside the body by inserting various small catheters or wires, with the use of various imaging techniques (i.e. CT scanners, Fluoro, ultrasound scanners). Interventional radiology offers an alternative to the surgical treatment of many conditions and can eliminate the need for hospitalization, in some cases. Interventional radiologists work closely with other physicians and play an important role on the treatment team.

The interventional radiology team also performs other procedures such as kyphoplasty, tumor ablation, gastrostomy tube, nephrostomy and biliary catheter placements.
